A historic case heads to the Supreme Court tomorrow. It could determine whether same sex couples have the right to marry once and for all.

Appeals courts across the country have signaled their support for same sex marriage. Many have also ruled against it. Now it will be decided by the highest court in the land.

David Cruz is a professor of constitutional law at USC. He tells Take Two:

“If I had to predict a ruling today, I would cautiously expect the court will rule in favor of same sex couples [and] will hold that it violates the constitution for states to deny the right to marry to same-sex couples or to recognize valid marriages that they had entered into.”
