Appeals court to rule on review of same-sex marriage ban

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals will decide Tuesday, whether to review a ruling that overturned Prop 8's ban on same sex marriage.

Earlier this year, a three-judge panel declared the voter-approved ban unconstitutional.

If the federal appeals court agrees to review that ruling, a larger panel of 11 judges will be assembled.

If it declines to review the ruling, the case is expected to be appealed to the US Supreme Court.
