Landmark day in gay marriage battle

A federal appeals court Tuesday overturned California's Proposition 8 ban on gay marriage, in a narrow ruling that opponents hailed as historic and supporters immediately vowed to appeal.

The limited, California-only approach adopted by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals means the U.S. Supreme court might choose to steer clear of the dispute.

Meanwhile, the court left in place a stay preventing same-sex marriages from resuming in California.
