US judge rejects bid to toss gay marriage ruling

SAN FRANCISCO - A US judge let stand a ruling allowing same-sex marriage in California, rejecting an argument that the gay judge who wrote it was biased.
US District Judge Vaughn Walker in San Francisco last year struck down California's same-sex marriage ban, known as Proposition 8, and supporters of the ban now say his ruling was compromised and should be vacated.
In a written ruling on Tuesday, Chief US District Judge James Ware said Walker's same-sex relationship was not reason to toss out his decision. Ware took over the case after Walker retired earlier this year.
