article description
In 2013, the United States Supreme Court decided two major cases on marriage equality – U.S. v. Windsor and Hollingsworth v. Perry. These cases paved the way for the Court’s eventual decision in 2015, in Obergefell v. Hodges, that the Constitution requires that states permit same-sex marriage. This article analyzes those precedents for an audience of Spanish-speaking legal professionals and academics seeking to understand the basis for the Court’s decisions.
