BBC NEWS | Americas | California annuls gay marriages: "California annuls gay marriages
California's Supreme Court has annulled about 4,000 gay marriages that took place in San Francisco.
The court ruled that San Francisco's mayor had overstepped his authority by issuing same-sex marriage licences earlier this year.
Thousands of same-sex couples were married in the city between 12 February and 11 March, when the court issued an injunction halting the wedding spree.
Gay marriage is a controversial issue in the US.
The marriages had virtually no legal value, but they angered conservative groups, which launched legal challenges to nullify them. "
