CABM101 - **RETRANSMISSION TO ADD THAT ALL WERE ISSUED SAME-SEX MARRIAGE LICENSES EARLIER THIS YEAR** Molly McKay, right, reads a decision from the California Supreme Court nullifying gay marriages in California Thursday, Aug. 12, 2004, in San Francisco. San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom overstepped his authority when he issued more than 4,000 same-sex marriage licenses earlier this year, the California Supreme Court ruled Thursday. California's high court said Newsom did not have the authority to dole out 4,037 marriage licenses to gays and lesbians beginning Feb. 12, a move the justices said contradicted legislation and a voter-approved measure declaring marriage as a union between a man and woman. Also shown, from left, are couple Karen Carrington and Joy O'Donnell, and couple Stuart Gaffney and John Lewis. McKay and the couples were issued same-sex marriage licenses earlier this year.
