US Supreme Court could make ruling on key equal marriage cases today
Update 15:32: The Supreme Court failed to make its decision today, and is expected to do so on Monday. Check back on PinkNews.co.uk for updates.
The US Supreme Court could be about to make a decision on two key equal marriage cases, as it is expected to do so before summer recess, and is running out of allotted decision days
On the first day of hearings in March, the court heard arguments around Proposition 8, the state of California’s ban on equal marriage. Then the justices questioned the meaning of marriage, and challenged arguments for the ban.
There are a number of possible outcomes, which range from effectively allowing equal marriage across the US, to letting Proposition 8 and DOMA stand.
The Supreme Court does not announce which decisions it will announce ahead of time.
Monday 24th June still remains on the calendar as a day on which the court could announce a decision. It could also add extra decision days after Monday.
