U.S. Supreme Court Set to Rule on State Same-Sex Marriage Bans

Later this month, the U.S. Supreme Court will issue its opinion in the case of Obergefell v. Hodges, a case from Ohio challenging that state’s same-sex marriage ban. The court will rule on whether the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment requires a state to grant same-sex couples the right to marry, and whether it requires states to recognize same-sex marriages entered in other states.

The court’s ruling will impact all states with existing same-sex marriage bans, including Missouri. The MCC will be reporting on this issue more in coming weeks. Stay tuned.
