Due to extreme public interest, State Attorney General Jerry Brown pressed the CA Supreme Court today to decide whether or not the gay marriage ban, Prop 8, is constitutionally valid.

According to the former CA Governor and Oakland Mayor, "the public interest would be best served not by issuing a temporary stay, but by an expedited resolution of the important issues raised by the petitions." So, it looks like we could see some sort of turning point in the very near future. Hopefully, that is. (To read the press release in its entirety, check it out.)
