Court won't rehear ruling on CA gay marriage ban
Federal appeals court refuses to review panel's rejection of California gay marriage ban
By The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) ' A federal appeals court in San Francisco has refused to reconsider a landmark ruling that struck down California's ban on same-sex marriages.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Tuesday a majority of its actively serving judges had voted not to revisit the 2-1 decision by a three-judge panel of the court declaring the voter-approved ban unconstitutional.

Backers of the ban, known as Proposition 8, opted in February to petition the full 9th Circuit to review the decision instead of appealing to the U.S. Supreme Court.



Same sex unions briefly were legal in California before voters passed Proposition 8 in November 2008.
