Supreme Court Considers Gay Marriage Cases

    The Supreme Court justices, meeting behind closed doors Friday, to discuss taking on same-sex marriage sooner rather than later.

    FOX News Radio's Steve Taylor reports from Washington:

    The federal Defense of Marriage law defines marriage as between a man and a women. Six lower level courts say that definition deprives same-sex couples of benefits and protections under federal law. The Supreme Court is expected this term to try to resolve that conflict. The justices also could decide to take on a larger conflict, between the 31 states that have banned gay marriage and the dozen other states that recognize it or soon will.
