Christian Science Monitor reporter Warren Richey reports on the effort of Proposition 8 supporters to have the U.S. Supreme Court rule on California's overturned law banning same-sex marriages. Richey reports it's one of several important cases the court may choose to hear on the issue:
Should the high court agree to hear the Prop. 8 and DOMA cases, the combination of both issues during the same term would mark the most extensive and important Supreme Court examination of gay rights in the US ever.
It also comes as President Obama and the Democratic Party are considering embracing gay rights as a key priority on the partys platform during the coming presidential election.
