The US Supreme Court and Same-Sex Marriage After this morning's hour and twenty minutes of legal arguments and judicial questioning, the US Supreme Court will probably take until June to rule on the issue of same-sex marriage . Gay marriage advocates have targeted California's Proposition 8, which banned such unions five years ago. The justices have a plateful of options to consider. Will they uphold Prop 8? Will they rule that same-sex marriage is a constitutional right? As public opinion has shifted, will a court majority leave the issue up to different voters in different states? We hear excerpts from both sides, learn what the justices wanted to know, get analysis and perhaps even a brave prediction or two.
