Justice Kennedy denies petition of appeal: Gay marriages continue in California

On Monday, July 1st, 2013

Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, who authored the majority opinion in the ruling that struck down the federal Defense of Marriage Act, denied a request from backers of Proposition 8 to halt same-sex marriage licenses in the state of California according to the Associated Press on June 30.

Opponents of same-sex marriage were not happy on Saturday, a day after the gay couples were allowed to marry due to a three judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals’ decision to lift the ban on gay marriage and allow couples to marry again immediately. The group opposing the decision claims that the 9th Circuit judges acted prematurely in their decision and filed a petition asking the Supreme Court to find that the 9th Circuit had no jurisdiction to order same-sex marriages on Friday.

On Sunday, Justice Kennedy turned away the appeal without offering a comment making him even more popular amongst gay rights activists and the dozens of couples who have married since Friday including the two couples who were plaintiffs in the Proposition 8 Supreme Court case. Both couples were married immediately following the decision came in on Friday from the 9th Circuit.Gay Couples Wed As California Lifts Stay on Same-Sex Marriages After Supreme Court Ruling

Born in 1976, Tarringo was the first child, grandchild and nephew in a family that had grown accustomed to struggle. His mother was a teenager who quickly lost the support of my father who today he knows very little of. These aspects of his life triggered the inspiration of his pen.
