Will SCOTUS Rule on Gay Marriage Cases Tomorrow?
Once again, the Supreme Court held off on ruling on two landmark gay marriage cases. The SOCTUS Blog and other experts say the rulings will come Wednesday at 10 a.m. and not extend their announcements into July.
"Tomorrow is the last #scotus day. Same-sex marriage. History," SCTOUS Blog tweeted.
On Monday, the Supreme Court ruled on affirmative action, one of the bigger cases the justices had to rule on, sending the case back to a lower court and stating "strict scrutiny does not permit a court to accept a school’s assertion that its admissions process uses race in a permissible way without closely examining how the process works in practice, yet that is what the District Court and Fifth Circuit did here."
On Tuesday, SCOTUS struck down a key section of the Voting Rights Act, ruling that the prevision "cannot be enforced unless Congress comes up with an up-to-date formula for deciding which states and localities still need federal monitoring," the Associated Press writes.
"This is it -- we’re finally getting a ruling on Prop 8. Since the Supreme Court didn’t rule today, we know it’s going to be coming sometime this week," said Matt Bauem in a YouTube video for American Foundation for Equal Rights.
This is the last week the Supreme Court can rule on these hot-button cases.
