Supreme Court Sets a Date for Marriage Cases
The Supreme Court will hear arguments in a consolidated marriage equality case from four states on April 28, reports SCOTUSblog.
In a departure from standard procedure, audio recording from inside the courtroom will be released by 2 p.m. the day of the hearing, according to SCOTUSblog. The Supreme Court does not allow video recording inside its chambers.
The nine Justices of the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in a consolidated case from the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, which last November became the first (and is still the only) federal appeals court to uphold any state’s marriage ban since the Supreme Court’s landmark June 2013 decision in U.S. v. Windsor. The consolidated case contains lawsuits that originated in Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, and Kentucky.
