California Supreme Court to Announce Ruling on Gay Marriage Tomorrow

The State Supreme Court says it will issue a ruling Tuesday on three lawsuits challenging Proposition Eight. That's the voter approved constitutional amendment that bans same-sex marriages. Steve Shadley reports.

The long-awaited ruling is expected to get national attention. Last November, voters narrowly approved Prop 8. That happened only a few months after the State Supreme Court ruled that same sex marriages could be performed.

More than 18,000 gay couples exchanged their vows in the state.

In a recent interview State Supreme Court Justice Carlos Moreno said the deliberations are "always spirited."

The court has to decide if Prop 8 was put on the ballot properly. The Justices also are expected to decide whether same-sex marriages performed before the measure was passed will be allowed to stand.
