The hits just keep coming. We’ve got another big Circuit Court hearing coming up, this one in the Ninth Circuit, covering cases from Idaho, Nevada, and Hawaii.
Passport Magazine reports:
On September 8th the 9th Circuit Court will hear oral arguments beginning at the James R Browning US Courthouse, 95 7th Street, San Francisco. The arguments concern laws banning marriage equality in Idaho, Nevada, and Hawaii. This announcement comes just days after the 7th Circuit Court agreed to hear cases concerning Indiana and Wisconsin. Since the Supreme Court’s June 2013 decision striking down the Defense of Marriage Act, the Seventh, Sixth, Tenth, and Fourth Circuits have heard oral arguments in marriage equality cases. The Tenth Circuit issued rulings on June 25th and July 17th in cases from Utah and Oklahoma. The Fourth Circuit issued a ruling on July 28th in a case from Virginia. All three decisions held that same-sex couples have a fundamental right to marry.
Things are really coming to a boiling point, aren’t they? Anyone want to take odds on the US Supreme Court taking a case is next session?
