(CNN) – The legal battle over same-sex marriage still rages on in California. But a resolution could come soon as the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to decide whether to weigh in on California’s Proposition 8. That legislation aims to amend the state's Constitution to ban same-sex marriage.
The high court will be considering several petitions dealing with the issue, including Prop 8. The justices could review a lower court ruling declaring the state's ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional.
[2:51] "If they don't take Proposition 8 for review, then the 9th circuit's decision stands, and the 9th circuit found Proposition 8 to be unconstitutional," says In Session Correspondent Beth Karas.
[1:12] "Proposition 8 violates the Federal Constitution – this is not about the California state law. Many, many times the Supreme Court looked at marriage and said you can't deny someone this."
[1:43] "There is a distinction based on gender complementarity. There is a distinction based on the type of couple where opposite sex couples have the opportunity to marry and same sex couple do not."
