All Points: Supreme Court and gay marriage bans

Tuesday, Oct. 14, 2014

The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to step aside and not hear seven cases involving state bans on same-sex marriage continues to be controversial. The court’s inaction lets stand lower-court rulings that struck down the bans and was a victory for same-sex marriage in those states. But that’s not as definitive as some people on both sides of the debate want.

Should the Supreme Court confront this challenge directly, or is it enough to let lower courts handle it?
