SCOTUS Could Address Wisconsin Same Sex Marriage Ban

The US Supreme Court justices are meeting privately Monday to discuss gay marriage bans in Wisconsin and five other states. In the private conference, they'll take a look at cases and petitions from the summer. The same sex case from Wisconsin is one they could act on.

There are three different outcomes from Monday's meeting. The US Supreme Court can decide it doesn't want to hear a same-sex marriage case in this session. It could decide it's going to wait to see what other cases might come up through the court system and make a decision later. Or, the court could pick a case by Tuesday.

The Milwaukee LGBT community hopes the Wisconsin case is selected. It feels it's put in a lot of work and would like it to be recognized.

\"The important thing is the supreme court give a definitive answer that will be nationally recognized as what this country stands for four civil rights for same-sex couples,\" said Milwaukee LGBT Executive Director Karen Gotlzer.
