Social Justice Initiatives Monday: Same-Sex Marriage Cases Before the Supreme Court
Mon. March 25th, 12:10-1:10pm – JG 546
Professor Mary Anne Case will offer a preview and lead a discussion of the oral arguments and constitutional issues before the US Supreme Court this week. On Tuesday, the Court will hear arguments on Proposition 8, a ballot measure approved by California voters in 2008 that stripped away existing marriage rights in the state for same-sex couples. The next day, the Court will listen to arguments on the federal Defense of Marriage Act, which prohibits federal recognition of same-sex marriage. Come hear from one of our very own experts.
Non-pizza lunch will be served.
