US Supreme Court Returns. And Decides to Turn Away Same-Sex Marriage Cases.

by Beverly A. Pekala on October 6, 2014

Today is the First Monday in October. No, that’s not just the title of a movie (for those old enough to remember the movie). Each year the Supreme Court returns from summer vacation and begins a new term on the first Monday in October. Naturally, we anxiously await hearing which cases the Court will accept. Each year approximately 10,000 cases are appealed to the Supreme Court, but the Court only accepts about 75 cases. Among the appeals highly watched were those dealing with same-sex marriage. Today the Court decided it will not accept any of the several sex-marriage cases which had been appealed. This means same-sex marriage will now be available in Indiana, Utah, Oklahoma, Virginia and Wisconsin. The Justices are scheduled to meet in private this Friday to consider whether they will accept certain cases, so further decisions accepted cases could be released in the next week or two. 
 
Stay tuned.
