The California Supreme Court will review the constitutionality of the Proposition 8 ban on same gender marriage. The same Court decided that the state constitution protects the rights of gays and lesbians to get married in May of this year.
The first legal briefs are due December 19, with a reply from opponents of Prop 8 due in early January. Oral arguments are expected to be heard in March 2009.
Unfortunately, the Court did not suspend the ban so it remains in effect throughout the Court proceedings.
