The U.S. Supreme Court will take up California’s ban on same-sex marriage, allowing the justices the chance to rule on whether gay Americans have the same constitutional right to marry as heterosexuals. On Monday, justices will review a federal appeals court ruling that struck down California’s gay marriage ban. The court will also decide whether Congress can deprive legally married gay couples of federal benefits otherwise available to married people.
