Jewish groups split on gay marriage ruling

Jewish groups split on a federal appeals court ruling that allows same-sex couples to marry in California. The 2-1 decision Tuesday by the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals reversed Proposition 8, a 2008 ballot measure that said same-sex marriages violated the state constitution. Prop 8 had reversed a decision the same year by the California state Supreme Court that had allowed same-sex marriage.
