Groups to appeal ruling on gay marriage documents

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Two civil rights groups have notified a federal judge that they intend to appeal his decision requiring them to surrender internal documents from their campaign against California's same-sex marriage ban.

The American Civil Liberties Union and Equality California notified U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker on Tuesday while asking him to temporarily suspend his order.

The judge granted the request and gave the groups until March 29 to determine if the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will hear their objections.

Walker ruled Monday that lawyers for the sponsors of Proposition 8, the 2008 ballot measure that stopped gay marriage, are entitled to review the material because the ban is now the subject of a constitutional challenge in his court.
