California: Schwarzenegger calls for same-sex weddings

SAN FRANCISCO — California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Attorney General Jerry Brown filed motions Friday calling for resumption of same-sex weddings in the state.
The officials filed the motions after US District Judge Vaughn Walker previously overturned California's voter-approved gay marriage ban, known as Proposition 8.
Resuming gay marriage "is consistent with California's long history of treating all people and their relationships with equal dignity and respect," Schwarzenegger said in his legal filing.
