Supreme Court weighs same-sex marriage cases
Placeholder Image
By Mark Sherman Associated Press WASHINGTON - Same-sex couples in 11 more states would win the right to marry, but the issue would remain unsettled nationwide if the Supreme Court were to surprise everyone and decline to take up gay marriage right now. A decision by the justices to reject calls from all quarters to take up same-sex marriage would lead to gay and lesbian unions in 30 states and the District of Columbia, up from 19 states. Couples in Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin could begin getting married almost immediately.
