upreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said Wednesday that the court will likely make a ruling on the Defense of Marriage Act — which defines marriage between a man and a woman — sometime next year. Ginsburg was asked by a student about the Constitution's equal-protection clause during an appearance at the University of Boulder Colorado, and if the Supreme Court would consider applying it to sexual orientation. The justice said she couldn't go into detail but said DOMA would "most likely" come before the court in 2013.
