Case Western Reserve Law Review’s annual symposium will discuss the variety of legal issues associated with the Supreme Court’s decisions in United States v. Windsor and Hollingsworth v. Perry, which address the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act and Proposition 8, California's gay marriage ban. Notable scholars in the fields of political science, sociology, religious liberty, tax and constitutional law, will examine the Court’s decisions through the lenses of these disciplines. Areas of discussion will include (1) judicial independence; (2)  the level of scrutiny applied by the Court to these decisions; (3) federalism; (4) future tax treatments for same-sex couples; and (5) the implication of these rulings on the definition of family in America.
