Will Supreme Court hear case involving gay marriage?

RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) РThe Supreme Court had a chance Friday to decide whether they would hear a series of appeals about gay marriage. They decided to decide next week.

The court can choose to hear one of the multiple cases and make a decision that would dictate the future of gay marriage laws for the country.
