Judge To Issue Ruling On Same-Sex Marriage Wednesday

A federal judge in San Francisco will hand down his decision Wednesday on whether California’s same-sex marriage ban violates the constitutional rights of gay men and lesbians.

A U.S. District Court spokeswoman announced Tuesday that Chief Judge Vaughn Walker will issue his opinion through the court’s electronic filing system. He will not conduct a special hearing to announce his findings.

The ruling is coming in a lawsuit brought by two same-sex couples seeking to overturn California’s voter-approved Proposition 8, which outlaws gay marriage. The judge presided over a 13-day trial in the case earlier this year.

Lawyers on both sides of the issue have previously said they would appeal if Walker did not rule in their favor.
