Gay marriage set to make grand US Supreme Court return

The US Supreme Court this week made plans to revisit gay marriage, less than 15 months after its landmark decision that same-sex couples were entitled to the same rights as heterosexuals. While courts across the United States have been hearing gay-marriage cases, the Supreme Court said it will use a September 29 private conference to consider appeals that concern whether gay marriage can be legal in some states but not in others. Whether for or against gay marriage, concerned US parties seem to be forming a consensus on at least one point: it’s time for the Supreme Court to decide. “It’s crystal-clear that the court needs to take up the freedom to marry issue again,” said James Esseks, from the American Civil Liberties Union.
