San Francisco – … [Today] … the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit… [upheld] …an order preventing gay and lesbian couples from marrying in California. That original order, issued in August 2010, stayed the injunction issued by the US District Court that barred further enforcement of Proposition 8.

The US District Court [had] declared Proposition 8—which eliminated marriage rights for same-sex couples—unconstitutional and “gravely harmful” and ordered the State to cease all enforcement of it.
