Breaking News: Supreme Court to Rule on Marriage Equality

The Supreme Court will hear arguments in April to decide whether same-sex couples nationwide have a right to marry under the Constitution, the Associated Press reported. The Court has granted all four same-sex marriage petitions, along with four other cases, according to SCOTUSBlog. The order list is here.

Federal and State court rulings have led to 36 states allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry. The court said Friday it will review an appellate ruling that banned gay marriage in Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee.

“The court’s announcement made it likely that it would resolve one of the great civil rights questions of the age before its current term ends in June,”  The New York Times reported.
