Supreme Court Taking Up Same Sex Marriage
WASHINGTON, D.C.-- It's back to the bench for Supreme Court Justices Monday. Perhaps on their docket, same sex marriage.
One or two cases involving the rights of gays and lesbians to marry may offer the best chance for a landmark ruling.
One case involves the federal defense of marriage act. States don't have to recognize same sex marriages from other states.
Another challenge involves California's prop 8, which defines marriage only between a man and woman.
Another appeal pending with the high court is can states like South Carolina pass voting related laws without approval from the federal government.
