California Appeals Court Overturns the Redefining of Marriage to Include Same-Sex Couples


On October 5, 2006, the California Court of Appeals reversed a lower court’s 2005 decision redefining marriage to include same-sex couples. "The appeals court justices ruled that California's ban on gay marriage does not violate the constitutional rights of gays and lesbians nor is it discriminatory because the state's domestic partner law gives registered same-sex couples the same rights as married spouses in California.The court also decided that it is not within its jurisdiction to create or to recognize new rights."
