The California Supreme Court orders an immediate halt to gay marriages in San Francisco. The court, in a unanimous ruling, will require Mayor Gavin Newsom to prove he has the authority to grant licenses to same-sex marriages, which are not legal under California law. The court will hear arguments on that question in May or June. Hear NPR's Melissa Block and NPR's Richard Gonzales.
