Supreme Court Hears Gay Marriage

Posted: Updated:

Ryan Finke and Katy Moritza are active members of clubs on Ohio Northern Universities campus that support same-sex marriage. They are depending on the Supreme Court to legalize gay marriage, and not the states.

But the Supreme Court may not be able to come to a conclusion. Professor of Law, Joanne Brant, says the supreme court justices have voiced concerns over the "standing" of the entities challenging the laws. She says because federal entities are refusing to present themselves in the cases, and support groups for gay marriage are, that the justices may not have judicial power to enforce same-sex marriage.

She says its unlikely "standing" wont be a problem, and that they may want to just let the people decided now that public opinion is swaying.

But millions of gay Americans are still depending on the supreme court to give them the right to marry.

Brant says she expects the supreme court will not have a decision until the end of their term in June.
