Supreme Court to hear gay marriage arguments Tuesday

Tuesday, April 28, 2015 | Tag Cloud

Supreme Court, Washington D.C.

(Worthy News)-- The nine justices and five lawyers who will argue the gay marriage cases at the Supreme Court on Tuesday morning will center their debate on a simple question: "Who decides" state marriage policy?

Lawyers for the dozens of gay couples in Obergefell v. Hodges and three companion cases will argue that the 14th Amendment, written after the Civil War to guarantee equal treatment and due process to blacks, also guarantees them equal access to state marriage licenses — and recognition of those licenses in all states.

“The right to marry the person of one’s choice is a fundamental freedom,” April DeBoer and her co-petitioners said in their brief in DeBoer v. Snyder. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/apr/27/supreme-court-to-hear-gay-marriage-arguments-tuesd/" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
