The marriage issue in California will be decided by the state's high court after the court of appeals voted 2-1 that the state's marriage ban does not violate its constitution. Marriage advocates were not surprised by the decision, which struck down a 2005 lower court ruling in favor of marriage rights. "This decision is a pit-stop on the long road to justice, not a detour," said Jennifer C. Pizer, senior counsel at Lambda Legal.
