New York’s Highest Court to Review Gay Marriage Dispute Wednesday

New York's Court of Appeals, its highest court, will hear arguments Wednesday on behalf of 45 same-sex couples who were denied marriage licenses in that state. The decision by the Court of Appeals is the final step in the state appeal process on the question of whether gay and lesbian couples should be allowed to marry.  An intermediate court of appeals had earlier upheld New York's marriage laws as constitutional.  A decision from the Court of Appeals is expected in a few weeks.
