California Supreme Court to Rule Tuesday on Same–Sex Marriage

The California Supreme Court will announce this Tuesday their decision on the constitutionality of the voter approved amendment banning same-sex marriage in the state. With Iowa, Maine and Vermont joining Connecticut and Massachusetts in legalizing gay marriages the case brought to the courts by plaintiffs that see the ruling as unconstitutional grows ever stronger. California voters have approved a ban on same-sex marriages twice in the last nine years but the decision of whether or not the amendment abridges the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States, lies in the hands of the State's highest court. What can we expect?
