Equality news round-up: Marriage equality events at the Supreme Court in March, and more

Community/Meta DOMA trials Prop 8 trial

By Scottie Thomaston

– The Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the marriage cases March 26-27. Follow and “Like” the March 4 Marriage Facebook page for news updates on marriage equality events in the works at the Court that week.

Think Progress highlights one of the amicus briefs filed in United States v. Windsor in support of the Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group (BLAG): Citizens United filed a brief suggesting that one of the major desegregation decisions by the Supreme Court (Bolling v. Sharpe) was incorrect in its equal protection analysis. (That was the case that read equal protection principles into the Fifth Amendment.)

– President Obama said last night that the Boy Scouts should end its gay ban.

– The Stanford Law Review has an article on BLAG’s standing in Windsor.

– A brief summary of the amicus briefs in the Prop 8 and DOMA cases (supporting the anti-same-sex-marriage side in both.)
