Unveiling Marriage Equality?

“’Cause maybe they’ve seen us and welcome us all”

SCOTUSblog has a “flash” symposium on the Supreme Court’s grant of review Friday, January 16, in the four marriage cases from the Sixth Circuit, Same-sex marriage and the 14th Amendment.  My entry, UnveilingMarriage Equality?, addresses the issues the Court did, did not, and could take up in the cases; hazards a prediction regarding the ultimate outcome of the litigation; offers the skeleton of a defense of my position that the Constitution requires marriage equality; and sounds a note of caution about the Supreme Court’s recent spotty record on equality issues and the need for sustained work to bring about a more equal society in the United States.
