Saint Mary's School of Liberal Arts Dean Steve Woolpert spoke with KCBS and KGO radio about the decision by the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) to review gay marriage. Woolpert, a politics professor who studies constitutional law and how U.S. social policies are influenced by the nation's high court, commented on which way the Supreme Court may rule when it examines California's voter-approved ban on same-sex marriages, "Proposition 8," and a New York challenge to the federal Defense of Marriage Act. The justices are expected to hear oral arguments on gay marriage in March, with a ruling by late June.
