“Supreme Court Unlikely To Deliver Gay-Marriage Mandate” | Daniel Fisher at Forbes

Daniel Fisher at Forbes: The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear a pair of cases that could — but likely will not — establish a nationwide, constitutional right to gay marriage. The cases leave the high court plenty of escape hatches from taking a big step the country may not be ready for yet, said William Eskridge, a constitutional law scholar at Yale Law School who contributed the legal reasoning that helped decide one of the cases, a challenge to an anti-gay marriage referendum in California.
