It seems that the gay marriage litigation will continue. The ninth circuit court of appeals refused to allow same-sex marriages to take place in California while it considers the constitutionality of the current state ban. I imagine that the 9th Circuit, no matter what it decides, will not have the last word on this issue. I see it going all the way to the Supreme Court of the United States. Whatever happens, it will have far reaching effects on the practice of family law in California.
See the San Diego 6 report: Court: No gay marriages in CA during appeal.
