Mercer 6536


Dahlia Ferlito, 28, (L) and her wife Antoinette Reyes, 27, (R), chant with other demonstrators at a protest rally outside the Los Angeles County Marriage License Office in Los Angeles, California on May 26, 2009, following the California Supreme Court decision to uphold Proposition 8 which outlawed gay marriage.

Testimony concluded yesterday in the federal trial on the constitutionality of Proposition 8, California's ban on same-sex marriage. Both sides in the case now have until February 26 to file post-trial documents, after which closing arguments will be scheduled. Larry Mantle discusses the final testimony of the case, which supporters of both sides expect to be appealed until it reaches the U.S. Supreme Court.
