The Federal Appeals Court today announced that oral arguments for the appeal of Proposition 8, which banned gay marriage in California, will be heard at 10 a.m. on December 6th.

Prop 8 backers are appealing a lower court desicion from August where Judge Vaughn Walker's August struck the voter-approved initiative down, calling it unconstitutional.

The American Foundation for Equal Rights, which filed a lawsuit against the state to fight Prop 8, will argue why an appeals court panel of three judges should uphold Walker's decision.
