Court Grants Review in Two Same-sex Marriage Cases

The Supreme Court today granted review in two same-sex marriage cases. The Court will consider a challenge to the Federal Defense of Marriage Act and California's ban on same-sex marriages (commonly known as Prop. 8). The Court could decide the cases several ways, but it will consider whether the Fourteenth Amendment's Equal Protection clause requires that states permit same-sex marriage.
