The federal jurist is deciding if a hold on gay marriage in the state should continue, following his recent ruling that overturned Proposition 8, which banned gay marriage in California.
The judge is expected to issue his decision before noon.
In response to a request by Proposition 8’s sponsors, Walker granted a temporary stay of his ruling and permitted all the parties to argue whether he should postpone the effect of his ruling permanently.
