Contra Costa won't fight to overturn Prop 8

December 9, 2008 6:55:34 PM PST
The Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday in a closed session to not join the battle to overturn Prop 8.

Contra Costa voters said no to the proposition last month, but the county will now not join San Francisco and other cities in the battle to reverse the ban on same-sex marriage.

Several cases looking to overturn the proposition are now before the state Supreme Court.
