FILE - In this Tuesday, Oct 13, 1987 file photo, gay activists attempt to block the steps of the Supreme Court as part of an act of civil disobedience in Washington, two days after the Gay March on Washington, as police stand guard to block an attempt by the group to enter the building. In late June 2013, the Supreme Court is expected to rule in two cases involving same-sex marriage. One is a challenge to California's voter-approved Proposition 8 that defines marriage as the union of a man and a woman. The other seeks to strike down a portion of the federal Defense of Marriage Act that denies to legally married same-sex couples a range of benefits that generally are available to married heterosexuals.
