WASHINGTON (AP) -- Supreme Court clears way for same-sex unions in California, but avoids ruling on gay marriage.
It's the second of two rulings the high court made on gay marriage Wednesday. The Supreme Court ruled defenders of California's gay marriage ban did not have the right to appeal lower court rulings striking down the ban.
The court's 5-4 vote Wednesday leaves in place the initial trial court declaration that the ban is unconstitutional. California officials probably will rely on that ruling to allow the resumption of same-sex unions in about a month's time.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court says legally married same-sex couples should get the same federal benefits as heterosexual couples.
The court invalidated a provision of the federal Defense of Marriage Act Wednesday that has prevented married gay couples from receiving a range of tax, health and retirement benefits that are generally available to married people. The vote was 5-4.
Do you agree with the gay marriage rulings made by the Supreme Court today?
