Supreme Court Rulings, Critical Accident, and Howard Turns 60!

Same Sex Marriage Ruling

It's a historic day for gay rights. The U.S. Supreme Court Justices have struck down part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act. That means that legally married same sex couples will be able to receive the same federal benefits and pensions that heterosexual couples receive. They did not take a stand on California's Proposition 8, which will allow the lower court ruling to be upheld. Same sex couples will be allowed to get married again in California.

Critical Pedestrian Accident

A man in his 60's is in critical condition this morning. Police say that he was hit as he tried to cross Farrington Highway in Maili near the 7-11 store. According to the Honolulu Police Department, a 22 year old driver hit him and officers believe that he may not have been able to see the pedestrian. The call came in around 1am. Hear from the witness this morning on Sunrise.

Sanctions Against Oregon

The NCAA has ruled that the University of Oregon and former coach Chip Kelly violated league rules. We'll have more on sanctions against the school.

Howard's 60th Birthday

The celebration is on! It's hard to believe but Uncle Howard is turning 60 years old today. We're going to share his childhood pictures, dig up old video of him and generally exploit this milestone. Natalie Ai Kamaau will perform for Howard.

We hope you'll wake up with us this morning!
