KCBS News Radio spoke with Saint Mary's Politics Professor Stephen Woolpert about the historic decision by the Supreme Court of the United States on gay marriage and its rulings on DOMA and Prop 8. Dean of SMC's School of Liberal Arts, Woolpert's research focuses on the U.S. Constitution and how decisions by the Supreme Court affect the nation. The news interview centered around the possibility of the supporters of Prop 8 finding a way to re-submit the case before the US Supreme Court. Woolpert notes that the high court dismissed Prop 8 because those who brought the case before the court had no legal standing, thereby nullifying it.
