High court ruling sought on US gay mariage
Ann Rostow, Network

California Attorney General Bill Lockyer has asked the American state's Supreme Court to take direct review of four same-sex marriage cases that are presently under appeal in the state's first appellate district.

Woo v. Lockyer, the main challenge to California's marriage laws, was brought by the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) on behalf of several same-sex couples. 

Three smaller suits, brought by same-sex couples against the state of California, were coordinated with Woo and heard together in the San Francisco courtroom of Superior Court Judge Richard Kramer.
