Online same-sex marriage symposium
Many observers expect the Court to take up one or more questions related to same-sex marriage this Term. As Lyle explained in his “Same-sex marriage made simple” post, the cases before the Court could include the challenge to the constitutionality of Proposition 8, California’s ban on same-sex marriage, as well as the challenges to the federal Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage for purposes of myriad federal laws and programs as limited to a relationship between a man and a woman. In an online symposium that will begin next week, a panel of guest contributors will weigh in on how the Court should — or is likely to – rule in these cases. An archive of our earlier coverage of the same-sex marriage issue and contributions to an earlier symposium on this topic is available here.
