Subject: SCOTUS GAY MARRIAGE
The Supreme Court has decided to take up TWO case:
- 1. Prop 8 out of California – voters passed measure only recognizing marriage between one man and one woman – a federal court overturned. Now the Justices will decide.
- 2. DOMA case out of NY – basically whether DOMA violates the 5th Am Equal Protection guarantee – for gay couples who have married in states where it is legal.
It’s unlikely there will be room on the calendar before March 2013. That will be earliest the Justices will actually hear the case
