Gay Marriage in Nebraska
Last week, the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals issued an opinion reversing a previous district court opinion which had struck down a Nebraska constitutional amendment defining marriage as being only between a man and a woman. The 8th Circuit held that the issue was entitled only to rational basis scrutiny, not any heightened level of scrutiny, and held that the federal Equal Protection Clause was not violated.
