Courts - SCOTUSblog 2nd of a 4-day series on "the constitutional controversy, now awaiting the Supreme Court’s attention, over same-sex marriage"

Written by Lyle Denniston, Part II's title is "The arguments for".

Also today, Marcia Coyle of the Daily Report has a long story headed "U.S. Supreme Court faces array of petitions on same-sex marriage: 10 petitions challenge U.S. Defense of Marriage Act, California's Prop. 8 ban and an Arizona law on benefits."

You can see many of the petitions, by case, here at SCOTUSblog.

Of particular local interest is the pending petition in Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group of the United States House of Representatives v. Gill, where the State of Indiana filed an amicus brief. The ILB wrote about this amicus brief at length in this August 23, 2012 ILB entry, headed "Ind. Gov't. - Who should decide Indiana's position on national legal issues? Who should know?."
