The video recording of the trial to overturn California's marriage amendment must remain sealed as promised, a three-judge appellate panel ruled Thursday.
A federal judge in San Francisco has scheduled a hearing on whether a ruling that struck down California's same-sex marriage ban should be thrown out because its author is in a same-sex relationship.
To hear them describe it, defenders of traditional marriage during last year's trial on California's Proposition 8 felt like the visiting team in a game with a hometown referee.
The sponsors of California's same-sex marriage ban said Monday that the recent disclosure by the federal judge who struck down Proposition 8 that he is in a long-term relationship with another man has given them new grounds to have his historic ruling overturned.
A man charged with killing his mother-in-law and shooting his wife and her grandmother outside a community college opened fire as his 4-year-old daughter sat with the women in a minivan, riddling the van with gunfire, police said Thursday.
A federal judge on Tuesday ordered the U.S. government to pay more than $2.5 million in lawyer fees and damages after he concluded investigators wiretapped the phones of a suspected terrorist organization without a warrant.
Call it the political equivalent of unilateral disarmament. It's when Republicans - maddeningly, mystifyingly - take a perfectly good campaign weapon off the table (or perhaps never put it on the table to begin with).
Even America's bitterest enemies understand why we mark July Fourth with parades, speeches and fireworks: to celebrate the signing of the Declaration of Independence. We're proud of our nation, and justifiably so.
A new report from the Schott Foundation reveals that just 47 percent of black male students earn a high school diploma on time. Ironically, this report came out shortly after Judge Vaughn R. Walker ruled on Proposition 8 and homosexual marriage in California. If the statements on which Judge Walker based his ruling are "facts," how do we explain what is happening educationally to boys in the black community, where a large majority are growing up without fathers?
A federal district judge in California has ruled that it's unconstitutional to define marriage as a covenant between a man and a woman.
In light of federal Judge Vaughn R. Walker's ruling on Aug. 4 striking down California's marriage law, let's imagine a worst-case scenario.
The federal judge who overturned California's same-sex marriage ban has more bad news for the measure's backers: He doubts they have the right to challenge his ruling that gay couples can begin marrying next week.
A federal judge on Thursday put gay marriages on hold for at least another six days in California, raising hopes among same-sex couples that they soon will be able to tie the knot after years of delays.
The federal judge who struck down the gay-marriage ban said Thursday that same-sex weddings can resume next week unless an appeals court intervenes before then.
U.S. District Judge Vaughn R. Walker's Aug. 4 ruling striking down California's Proposition 8 asserted far more than was necessary to redefine marriage as being between any two persons. Judge Walker's decision included controversial "findings of fact" that amounted to a massive new salvo in the culture wars over sexuality.
He declared that "animus" toward same-sex relationships was the reason that men have been marrying women since time began.
That's what openly homosexual U.S. District Judge Vaughn R. Walker essentially said in his bizarre ruling striking down California's voter-approved constitutional marriage amendment.
