Thoughtful link to professor’s legal analysis for this week’s gay rights cases before U.S. Supreme Court

I keep noticing misinformation in the media about the two cases heard this week in US Supreme Court addressing gay rights. The reporters make it seem as if the Supreme Court is some kind of super-legislature. It is not – it is the judicial branch that is supposed to properly interpret and apply the Constitution, federal and state law in reviewing lower court decisions. The Supreme Court is restrained by the facts and law from the cases being appealed.

Luckily, Univ. of California Irvine law professor Erwin Chemerinsky has provided us with a succinct review of the legal issues – not political issues – before the court in the two cases. We all look forward to seeing the decisions in June.

Check out Prof. Chemerinsky’s article from ABA website:

James Maisano, Esq.
