U.S. Supreme Court takes no action on Proposition 8 case today
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- The U.S. Supreme Court posted its order list and no action has yet been taken on same-sex marriage.
The justices were expected to announce whether they'll review the legality of Proposition 8 -- California's ban on same-sex marriage. This likely means the high court will consider the issue at a future conference in the coming weeks.
If the court does review Prop 8, a ruling would come sometime before the term ends in June. If the justices refuse to hear the case, a lower court decision declaring the ban unconstitutional would stand -- allowing same-sex weddings to resume within days.
