WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court announced Thursday that it will hear a challenge to state bans on same-sex marriage April 28.

At issue is a lower court opinion that upheld same-sex marriage bans in Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky and Tennessee.

The Court will hear two and 1/2 hours of arguments on two questions.

Does the Fourteenth Amendment require a state to license a marriage between two people of the same sex?

Does the Fourteenth Amendment require a state to recognize a marriage between two people of the same sex when their marriage was lawfully licensed and performed out-of-state?

April 28 is the second to last argument day of the term. A decision in the case is expected by June. The court is expected to provide audio recordings and transcripts the same day as the argument.
