Legal scholars previewed the two same-sex marriage cases to be argued before the U.S. Supreme Court on March 26 and 27, 2013. Hollingsworth v. Perry concerned California’s Proposition 8 law, which amended the state constitution to eliminate the right of same-sex couples to get married. United States v.
