an escalator after he banged on a bart train with a metal spoon and disrupted service. christin ayers says the bart protests are far from over. >> reporter: protesters promised 96 hours of action over this weekend from friday to morning. they started with disrupting the trains as you saw in the video this morning. and they will take their next action tomorrow morning right here at fruitvale station. this was the sound of civil disobedience. protesters kicked off the first of four solid days of protests against police brutality at san francisco bart station clanging metal spoons on pillars an train cars during the morning commute. the disturbance caused delays and closures of bart stations. >> certainly, it means lost revenue for us because fewer people were riding and paying for tickets. >> reporter: and left some commuters in the lurch. >> they are forced to consider the comparison of a two-hour

tonight, the supreme court has agreed to decide once and for all on gay marriage. the justices refused to take up the issue for years and that has a lot of people wondering, why now? here is cbs reporter jan crawford. >> reporter: an ohio based federal appeals court all but forced their hand. it ruled in november that same sex couples had no constitutional right to marry. this was in direct conflict to other appeals court rulings allowing same sex marriage. just as ruth baiter last year signaled the justices would only take up the issue once a lower court upheld a marriage ban. >> but when all the courts of appeals are in agreement, there is no need for us to step in. >> reporter: many say the justices have already paveed the way for this when they ruled two years ago that the federal government must recognize legal same marriages.
justin antonin scolia said they made it easy for the lower court to take the same step and strike down bans against same sex marriage, but it is not inevitable that the supreme court will take the step and the stakes are high. if the justices rule there is no constitutional right to same sex marriage, that would throw into question all of the marriages in the states that were legalized by those lower courts. jan crawford, cbs news, the supreme court. >> 36 states now allow same sex marriage covering 70% of the u.s. population. the case will be argued in late april and will be decided before the end of the current term in june. the british prime minister is telling silicon valley help us fight terrorism. cameron wrapped up meetings at the white house today. he wants google, facebook, and
