The Supreme Court Is Going To Take On Two Huge Gay Marriage Cases

• Business Insider

The court will take up both Proposition 8, which outlawed gay marriage in California, and a challenge to the federal Defense of Marriage Act.

Proposition 8

In Prop 8, the Ninth Circuit appeals court affirmed that California's voter-approved ban on gay marriage was unconstitutional. Prop 8 had no purpose except lessening "the status and human dignity of gays and lesbians in California," that court found.
California's own Supreme Court effectively legalized gay marriage in 2008, but voters overturned that ruling with Prop 8 the same day Obama got elected for the first time.
