The Court’s five options in the California marriage case | Marty Lederman at SCOTUS Blog

Marty Lederman at SCOTUS Blog: All of the amicus briefs have now been filed in Hollingsworth v. Perry, the California same-sex marriage case.  In light of the parties’ opening briefs and a preliminary review of some of those amicus briefs, including the landmark filing by the United States (see Lyle’s post), and the briefs of California and of 13 other states (see my post here), it is more evident than ever that there are (at least) five possible outcomes in the case — a rich menu of choices for the Court.  | The Hollingsworth link above links to the court filings and a wealth of material related to the litigation.
