Will Supreme Court nationalize same-sex marriage? UGA experts will look for clues in oral arguments

Tuesday, April 28, 2015

Tomorrow, the U.S. Supreme Court will hold oral arguments in the challenges to state bans on same-sex marriage. Professors at the University of Georgia are watching for clues to see how the court will rule on the matter. “I fully expect the Supreme Court to hold in favor of marriage equality and would be shocked if it does not,” said Hillel Levin, an associate professor of law at UGA. “However, I will be listening closely to the oral arguments, and especially to Justices Kennedy and Roberts, for clues as to how many votes there may be for marriage equality. I'll also be very interested in any indications as to the reasoning the court might adopt. The court could reach its decision in different ways, and these have important implications for future legal battles.”
