Gay Marriage at the Supreme Court: Decision Time


This morning at 10am ET, the U.S. Supreme Court will announce one or more decisions in argued cases from its current term. The Court is expected to announce more rulings later in the week. Among the 11 undecided cases still on the docket, none have received more attention than Hollingsworth v. Perry, which deals with the constitutionality of California's Proposition 8 ban on gay marriage, and U.S. v. Windsor, which centers on the constitutionality of Section 3 of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act. How will the Supreme Court rule on these momentous issues? As you wait for the decisions, get yourself up to speed with this selection from Reason's coverage of the gay marriage cases.
