Same-Sex marriage

Cheri Lawson

The nation’s highest court says it will decide whether same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry anywhere in the U.S. WNKU's Cheri Lawson reports a ruling is expected by early this summer.

In November, a federal panel in Cincinnati  upheld  bans on same-sex marriage in four states  -- Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee and Michigan.

 The Supreme Court justices will review that ruling in April and a decision is expected by late June. 

Laura Landenwich, an attorney representing the plaintiffs in the Kentucky case, says this is a big day.
