Justice Ginsburg Expects Same-Sex Marriage Case In 2013
(AP) BOULDER, Colo. - Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says the Defense of Marriage Act will likely go to the U.S. Supreme Court within the next year.
Ginsburg spoke Wednesday at the University of Colorado in Boulder. She was asked by a student about the equal-protection clause and whether the nation's high court would consider it applying to sexual orientation.
Ginsburg said with a smile that she couldn't answer the question. She said she could not talk about matters that would come to the court, and that the Defense of Marriage Act would "most likely" come before the court before the end of the current term.
