  1. Justices Clear Aisle to Gay Marriage in Five States 

    Cue the wedding bells. The U.S. Supreme Court has refused to review same-sex marriage cases in five states, clearing the path for gay couples to marry in Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin.

The drumbeat grew even louder on Tuesday when a federal court struck down bans in Idaho and Nevada.
