California Overturns Gay Marriage Ban

Updated

The state Supreme Court ruled 4-3 today that the state’s domestic partnership law was not a a good enough substitute for marriage.

It paves the way for the Golden State to be the second in the country where gays and lesbians can marry.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger released this statement.

“I respect the Court’s decision and as Governor, I will uphold its ruling.  Also, as I have said in the past, I will not support an amendment to the constitution that would overturn this state Supreme Court ruling.”

One note: It was a very bizarre morning watching the ruling on CNN, which originally announced that the court had essentially ruled against gay marriage, only to correct itself about 10 minutes later.
