Supreme Court prepares for landmark case today
The U.S. Supreme Court struck down a federal ban on gay marriage in 2013, then refused to hear appeals challenging lower court decisions striking down state bans. The ruling it did agree to hear is the sole appellate decision upholding such bans. But court observers caution against assuming that means a pro-gay marriage ruling is a sure thing.
