Day of Decision Plans

No matter how the court rules Tuesday, San Diegans in support of same-sex marriage have set a date to meet as a group, this according to the Day of Decision website.

The California Supreme Court will reveal its ruling on legal challenges to Proposition 8 around 10 a.m. Tuesday, which outlawed same-sex marriages in the state on Tuesday and advocates on both sides of the issue are gearing up for action.

Both supporters and opponents of same-sex marriage have said they expect a split decision -- that the high court will find that Proposition 8 legally amended the state Constitution to outlaw gay marriage, but will sanction the marriages of 18,000 same-sex couples who tied the knot after the court struck down Proposition 22, which also outlawed gay marriage.

Supporters of same-sex marriage are encouraged to meet at 6th and Laurel at 4 p.m. Tuesday to either protest or celebrate, depending on the outcome of the ruling.

The site lists routes which will differ depending on the ruling. If the court rules for Prop 8, the group will march south from 6th Avenue to Broadway. If the court rules against Prop 8, the group will march north on 6th Avenue to University for a block party.
