Prop. 8 Heads To U.S. Supreme Court

Washington — The Associated Press reports the U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to take up California’s ban on same-sex union. They will also hear a separate dispute regarding federal benefits for legally married gay couples in the country.

The AP reports the court’s action gives the justices the chance to say whether gay Americans have the same constitutional right to marry as heterosexuals. The AP says several narrower paths also are open to the justices as they consider both California’s voter-approved Proposition 8 and the provision of the federal Defense of Marriage Act.


The court is expected to rule by late June.
