Supreme Court Gay Marriage Rulings to Come Wednesday

The ones everybody has been waiting for


The U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday will decide the fate of California's Proposition 8 and a 1996 federal ban on benefits for same-sex couples.

On Tuesday the court ruled in three cases, but did not decide the legal challenge to California's gay marriage ban or to the federal Defense of Marriage Act.

Chief Justice John Roberts indicated the court will end its term Wednesday with rulings in its remaining cases, and the same-sex marriage cases are two of the three still to be decided.
