Ginsburg: High court won't 'duck' gay marriage

WASHINGTON (AP) — Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says the Supreme Court won't duck the issue of same-sex marriage the next time a case comes to the court. The 81-year-old Ginsburg said in an interview with The Associated Press on Thursday that she expects a same-sex marriage case to be heard and decided by June 2016, and possibly a year earlier. She said attitudes have changed swiftly in favor of the right of same-sex couples to marry, which is now legal in 19 states and the District of Columbia. Ginsburg has served on the court since 1993. She was nominated by President Bill Clinton. She said feels she can still do the job well and rebuffed suggestions that she should retire now so President Barack Obama can appoint a like-minded successor.
