[UPDATE] U.S. Supreme Court to hear gay marriage cases on April 28

The U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on four same-sex marriage appeals in late April, the court said on Thursday. The outcome of the cases will likely determine the legality of gay marriage across the nation.

A schedule for the country’s highest court said justices will hear oral arguments in gay marriage cases from Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee on Tuesday, April 28. The oral arguments are expected to take about 2.5 hours.

In January, when the U.S. Supreme Court decided to take up the four cases, it limited the questions to: “Does the Fourteenth Amendment require a state to license a marriage between two people of the same sex?” and “Does the Fourteenth Amendment require a state to recognize a marriage between two people of the same sex when their marriage was lawfully licensed and performed out-of-state?”

A total of 90 minutes is being allotted for arguments on the first question, while one hour is allotted for arguments on the second question.
