SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Defenders of California's gay marriage ban, known as Proposition 8, said on Wednesday that they would seek continued enforcement of the ban until a statewide order is issued.

The statement from Andrew Pugno, general counsel for ProtectMarriage.com, came after the U.S. Supreme Court issued a ruling that restores a lower court order which had struck down Proposition 8. Pugno said the Supreme Court did "not directly resolve questions about the scope" of that lower court order.
