Justices poised to tackle constitutional right of same-sex marriage


#1

If one or more of those petitions are accepted now for review, oral arguments would likely be held early next year, with a monumental opinion expected by late June 2015.

“The question of whether same-sex marriage bans are constitutional is a historic issue, under the Constitution and for the Roberts Court,” said Thomas Goldstein, publisher of SCOTUSblog.com and a respected Washington attorney. “It’s hard to imagine a situation where judges are going to have more power to define the social and family relationships of the country.”

Hah!

1.) the Supremes should never have granted certiorari.
2.) Laws regarding marriage should be left up to the several states. Best outcome would be a short per curiam opinion to that effect but it won’t happen.

Exactly.
If they were to leave it to the states, that would be contrary to the progressive movement to make the constitution moot.
