Same-Sex Marriage Symposium

Scotusblog (the most followed blog covering the U.S. Supreme Court) will be hosting an on-line symposium on the issue of same-sex marriage.  A number of guest bloggers will debate this issue during the next two weeks. Topics to be addressed include:

  • Is the issue of same-sex marriage ripe for review?
  • What would be the applicable standard of review if the Court reaches the merits?
  • How is the Court likely to approach the question of same-sex marriage?
  • How will the Court’s decisions in other cases affect its views on the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act and California’s Proposition 8?
