Supreme Court Puts Off Action On Same-Sex Marriage

October 2, 2014 10:37 a.m.

The Supreme Court on Thursday announced eleven cases it will hear in the new term, but same-sex marriage wasn’t one of them.

That Court may still review the hotly anticipated issue of whether the Constitution provides a right for gay couples to marry, but Americans will have to wait until — at least — next week to find out.

The issue has quickly made its way through the courts as judges have struck down bans on gay marriage in states including Utah, Wisconsin and Virginia.

Among the cases the Court said it will review: access to the courts for prisoners, housing discrimination, redistricting in Arizona and a Florida dispute about judicial campaign contributions.
