Supreme Court mulls whether to hear gay marriage case: L.A. Now Live

The U.S. Supreme Court did not address the California gay-marriage case on Monday morning, leaving both foes and advocates of Proposition 8 in limbo -- at least until Friday, the next time the court might make an announcement.

The Times' Jessica Garrison will join L.A. Now Live at 9 a.m. to discuss the Supreme Court's options, what their action could mean and what both sides are saying.

The case against Proposition 8, the 2008 ballot initiative that banned gay marriage in California, had been discussed by justices last Friday, but was not on the list of cases the court said it would review.

If the court does not take the case, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling would stand. The appellate court found earlier this year that Proposition 8 was unconstitutional, clearing the way for same-sex marriage in California unless the Supreme Court decides to get involved.
