The most recent CMS results are presented for an analysis of the spin and parity of the Higgs-like boson near 126 GeV in the ZZ decay channel where the Z bosons decay into two muons or electrons. The analysis utilizes the full dataset recorded by CMS of 5.1 fb−1 and 19.6 fb−1 of pp collisions at center-of-mass energies of √s = 7 and 8 TeV respectively. The Standard Model prediction is compared against six alternate JP hypotheses. In all cases, the data favor the Standard Model prediction.
