Today, the U.S. Supreme Court will begin hearing oral arguments about the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and California’s Proposition 8. These historic civil rights cases mark the first time the Supreme Court has reviewed gay marriage, and the decisions may greatly impact the Constitution’s guarantee of equal protection.

If you want an overview on the cases and how they may unfold this term, check out the SCOTUSblog’s Q&A. It features Bloomber reporter Greg Stohr briefly breaking down the cases by legal issues, and presents a couple of possible outcomes. The New York Times also has a similar Q&A.
