California's Prop 8 still in the hands of Supreme Court by CNN published on 2012/11/30 17:25:16 +0000 The legal battle over same-sex marriage still rages on in California. But the conclusion could come soon as the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to decide whether to weigh in on California’s Proposition 8, which will amend the state's Constitution to ban same-sex marriage. The high court will be considering several petitions dealing with the issue, including Prop 8. The justices could review a lower court ruling declaring the state's ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional. "If they don't take Proposition 8 for review, then the 9th circuit's decision stands, and the 9th circuit found Proposition 8 to be unconstitutional," says In Session Correspondent Beth Karas.
