Oh yeah! We're gettin' closer!!

SCOTUS (the Supreme Court of the United States) confirmed through its Twitter account that arguments in their gay marriage cases will take place in March 2013.

And decisions will be made "around June 27!"

These cases include the decision made by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to strike down California's Prop 8 — which banned golden state same-sex marriages back in 2008.

SCOTUS will also review the challenge made to the Defense of Marriage Act, and that could mean progress for the entire country!!

You know we've got our equality-lovin' fingers crossed!

We're almost there!!

In February, the Ninth Circuit ruled that Californian Prop 8 was unconstitutional. So supporters of the gay-marriage-banning bill sought to have a larger panel of judges rehear their arguments.

But it's official. They're just not havin' it. The Ninth Circuit has declined to rehear arguments over the statewide ban on gay marriage.

That being said, the case is gearing up for it's trip to the Supreme Court, where the final gavel could bang equality once and for all!!!

If the Court decides the case is worth hearing, a decision will come by
