Good morning, everyone!

Agnes DeRouen here with a look at what we're working on for 7News at Noon.

The U.S. Supreme Court in a 5-4 vote has struck down the Defense of Marriage Act. The court also declined to rule on Proposition 8 - a California law banning same sex marriages - and sent it back to the Ninth Circuit appellate court with instructions for dismissal, effectively making the law invalid. We'll have more. Meanwhile, read all about it HERE. You can also weigh in on the issue on our poll at www.kplctv.com.

Also, a Moss Bluff couple is facing charges in a meth lab bust. We'll have the information from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office.

In weather, Ben Terry will have your forecast. Ben tells me it will be a dry day. Is there a chance of rain in sight? Tune in at noon to find out. And you can stay up-to-date on everything weather HERE.

Also, in Texas, hundreds of jeering protesters helped stop Texas lawmakers from passing one of the toughest abortion measures in the country, shouting down Senate Republicans and forcing them to miss a midnight deadline to pass the bill. We'll tell you about that.

And you won't want to miss our amazing video of a cat riding a dog!

See you at noon!
