Prof. Wilson on Marriage Equality

Robin WilsonYesterday, Professor Robin Wilson, the Class of 1958 Law Alumni Professor of Law, posted on SCOTUSblog, a popular Supreme Court forum.

In the post, which can be read in its entirety here, Professor Wilson discusses the constitutional challenges presented by Perry v. Schwarzenegger (now Perry v. Brown) and Windsor v. United States and that they leave little doubt that a U.S. Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage is inevitable. She recognizes that every state that has passed same-sex legislation has afforded religious protections for those who do not wish recognize gay marriage. She argues that a decision from the Court, no matter which way it should fall, should take care to accommodate individual states’ legislation.
