The Supreme Court is expected to decide Friday which, if any, marriage equality cases it will hear during its current term. Legal experts say the court is most likely to take cases on the Defense of Marriage Act, as numerous federal courts have struck down the law as unconstitutional.

The justices could decline to hear an appeal of the federal case involving Proposition 8, an outcome that would make marriage legal again for same-sex couples in California.
