Today the U.S. Supreme Court will consider whether to hear the Proposition 8 Case (Hollingsworth v. Perry [formerly Perry v. Brown]). When Prop 8 passed in California in 2008, it halted the legal right of gay couples to marry in the state. It has been overturned in state and federal courts and now is before SCOTUS. Should it grant review the case, the Justices will go on to consider whether Prop 8 violates the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
Many experts think the court will punt.
