Last week, the US Supreme Court announced its 2014-2015 case docket, and much to the dismay of LGBT advocates, the Court revealed they had yet to add a marriage equality case to their calender. In a a supreme move (see what I did there), the Court announced that they would not hear an appeal from five states seeking to prohibit same-sex marriages, paving the way for an immediate expansion of marriage equality.
The justices on Monday did not comment in rejecting appeals from Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin, immediately ending delays on marriage in those states. The decision also makes appeals court decisions in the 4th, 7th, and 10th circuit courts the law of the land, making marriage equality likely to come in 6 more states for a total of 30 states and the District of Columbia.
Huge. Epic. Monumental.
