Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg Hints At SCOTUS Action On Marriage Equality Appeals

Speaking at the University of Minnesota on Tuesday, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg hinted on the Supreme Court’s plan of action on the issue of gay marriage, pointing to the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals cases.

The AP reports:

[Ginsburg] said ‘there will be some urgency’ if [the Sixth Circuit] allows same-sex marriage bans to stand.

Such a decision would run contrary to a legal trend favoring gay marriage and force the Supreme Court to step in sooner, she predicted.

She said if the appeals panel falls in line with other rulings there is ‘no need for us to rush.’
