Abstract

Rick Garnett was quoted by the Associated Press article "Justices' new term has expectations on gay unions" on October 5.

Last term, the court bitterly divided over the religious rights of family-owned corporations that objected to paying for women’s contraceptives under President Barack Obama’s health care law. This case appears likely to unite the court, said University of Notre Dame law professor Richard Garnett. “I think there’s every reason to expect agreement among the justices that Arkansas hasn’t even come close to satisfying the burden,” Garnett said.
