Ruth Bader Ginsburg tells folks at University of Colorado in Boulder that DOMA may be on the Supreme Court's docket next year.
She was asked a student-submitted question about the equal-protection clause and whether the nation's high court would consider it applying to sexual orientation.If you don't know, DOMA's oral arguments are scheduled for Sept. 27.
Ginsburg said with a smile that she couldn't answer the question. She said she could not talk about matters that would come to the court, and that the Defense of Marriage Act would probably be up soon.
"I think it's most likely that we will have that issue before the court toward the end of the current term," she said.
