Prop. 8 Upheld, But Previous Gay Marriages Remain Valid

The California Supreme Court has announced its ruling on the challenge to the state's gay marriage ban: The voter-approved ban shall remain in place, but the 18,000 gay couples who were married before it took effect will not have their marriages invalidated.

The decision was made by a 6-1 majority of the justices.

More coverage to come. There's a protest planned for tonight in Santa Ana at the Old Orange County Courthouse (Sycamore and Civic Center), 6 p.m.
