California gay marriage case headed to U.S. Supreme Court

The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals’ decision to deny an appeal of February’s ruling against Proposition 8 paves the way for a U.S. Supreme Court decision on gay marriage by next year.

The decision means the U.S. Supreme Court is likely to  have two major gay-rights cases on its docket in the near future.  Another federal appeals court last week struck down a federal  law that denied federal recognition to same-sex marriage.

Backers of Proposition 8 said they will ask the  U.S. Supreme Court to review the 9th Circuit ruling.
