History at the Supreme Court – Joe Johns reports

“Early Start” begins this morning with history, at the Supreme Court.

In a decision that is likely to change the lives of millions of Americans, the high court threw out a law banning the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages. The Supreme Court ruled that marriage rules are up to the states and also opened the door for gay unions to resume in California.

CNN’s Joe Johns has more on the story, reporting that proponents took to the streets, celebrating what's being called a major victory for gay rights.
