"The national gay marriage debate shifted to California on Tuesday, as the state's highest court was hearing arguments on the constitutionality of a voter-approved law banning same-sex marriage.

"...In briefs submitted to the court, same-sex marriage supporters argued that California's Constitution leaves no room for denying gays and lesbians the right to wed.

"...'We're very hopeful that California history will stay true today and we'll see the constitution vindicated for the thousands of families in California who depend on our equal place under law,' said Jennifer Pizer, a lawyer with the Lambda Legal who is representing gay couples."
