Hollingsworth v. Perry Ruling Made By Supreme Court (FULL TEXT)

Posted: Updated:

The Supreme Court dismissed a case Wednesday regarding California's Proposition 8 gay marriage ban. Their decision makes same-sex marriage legal again in the state, but also opts against ruling more broadly on the issue of gay marriage.

By a 5-4 vote, the court held in Hollingsworth v. Perry that opponents of gay marriage behind California's 2008 Proposition 8 effort did not have the constitutional authority, or standing, to defend the law in federal courts after the state refused to appeal its loss at trial years earlier.
