The decades-long dispute over gay marriage is spinning close to a conclusion, as court cases question the constitutionality of banning same-sex unions, laying the groundwork for an increasingly inevitable reckoning in the Supreme Court. Nevadans are waiting for a determination on their own state constitutional ban of gay marriage as well, expected either in the form of a 9th Circuit Court of Appeals decision in Sevcik v. Sandoval or through a statewide ballot measure possible in 2016.
