LOS ANGELES - Two of the plaintiffs who challenged California's ban on gay marriage will wed on Friday in Los Angeles, representatives said.

Paul Katami and Jeff Zarrillo of Burbank, California, were among the plaintiffs in the case Hollingsworth v. Perry that went before the US Supreme Court this year.

The Supreme Court earlier this week sent the case back to the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals, which on Friday lifted a stay on its order striking down the California gay marriage ban.

The couple will wed at Los Angeles City Hall at 6:15 p.m. local time, said a statement from the American Foundation for Equal Rights, which sponsored the legal challenge.
