The Gay Marriage Cases: A Preview of the Supreme Court Oral Argument

Federalism & Separation of Powers Practice Group Teleforum Monday, April 27, 2015 01:00 PMFederalist Society Teleforum Conference Call

On January 16, 2015, the Supreme Court granted cert in four same-sex marriage cases from the Sixth Circuit (one case from each of four states of the circuit, -- Ohio, Michigan, Tennessee, Kentucky). The questions presented in the cases are: whether the Fourteenth Amendment "require[s]" a "state to issue a marriage license to two people of the same sex", and/or "to recognize a marriage between two people of the same sex when their marriage was lawfully licensed and performed" in another state or jurisdiction. This Teleforum will preview the strongest and weakest points of argument for each side in the case.
