David G. Savage discusses in the Los Angeles Times how Justice Anthony Kennedy is “poised to be the crucial vote in deciding whether gay marriage will be a constitutional right nationwide.”
At Bloomberg View, Noah Feldman argues that while Justice Kennedy may not clearly show his hand today, the Supreme Court will rule in favor of same-sex marriage.
Richard Wolf of USA Today profiles Mary Bonauto, a key player in the legal fight for marriage equality and the lawyer who will argue for same-sex marriage before the Supreme Court.
David A. Gans writes at the Constitutional Accountability Center’s Text & History Blog that a new bill in Congress seeks to strip federal courts of the ability to hear any cases pertaining to marriage, which would challenge “key aspects of our constitutional structure.”
