We are on our way to the Supreme Court. On January 16, 2015, the US Supreme Court has granted cert for the cases from the 6th Circuit. This means that the Supreme Court will be hearing arguments on the cases from Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee regarding the bans on same-sex marriage.
The Supreme Court will be hearing arguments the last week in April (the date isn’t set as of now) on two issues
- Whether or not the State’s ban against issues same-sex marriage licenses is valid.
- If the States have to recognize valid marriage licenses issued from other States.
- The ruling on these cases will be issued in June of this year.
- The Kentucky cases are Bourke v. Beshear and Love v. Beshear
