CNN.com reports that the California Supreme Court ruled on August 12, 2004, that the Mayor Newsom of San Francisco oversteped his authority by issuing same-sex couples marriage licenses since the state law defines marriage as a union between a man and a woman.

Other same-sex marriage news:

  • Missouri: Voters endorsed in August, 2004, a state constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage.

  • States with similar constitutional amendments include Alaska, Hawaii, Nebraska, and Nevada.
