Proposition 8 hearing ends with mixed signals
The California Supreme Court appeared ready today to vote to uphold Proposition 8, the November ballot measure that banned gay marriage, but also seemed ready to decide unanimously to recognize existing same-sex marriages.
During a three-hour televised hearing in San Francisco, only two of the court's seven justices indicated a possible readiness to overturn the initiative. Chief Justice Ronald M. George noted that the court was following a different Constitution when it approved gay marriage last May.
Times reporters, editors and photographers covered the hearing from end to end and are still scrambling to learn more. Come back often to latimes.com for the latest. Here are links to the coverage so far:
