Prof. NeJaime quoted by The Guardian on the potential for Supreme Court to hear same-sex marriage case
On Nov. 23, 2012, Associate Professor Doug NeJaime was quoted in a story by British newspaper, The Guardian, about the likelihood the Supreme Court will hear an appeal of California's controversial Prop. 8 law banning same-sex marriage:
"The reason that the popular vote on election night figures into this is it shows the court that more states are recognizing same-sex marriage. If they overturn Doma it just means that those couples will be recognized federally. It wouldn't have any impact on states where they don't recognize same-sex marriage."
