Here are the stories we covering and plan to post today:
In US news ...
• Mike Farrell in San Francisco previews the much-anticipated decision of the California Supreme Court on the gay-marriage ban in that state. He will write again later in the day after the court decision is announced.
• Politics writer Linda Feldmann and Supreme Court reporter Warren Richey report on Obama's nomination of Sonia Sotomayor to the US Supreme Court and why Obama picked her. They are likely to follow up with at least one further reporter this evening.
