High Court Hears Case On Federal Benefits For Gays

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - In a landmark debate over gay marriage, Justice Anthony Kennedy, a conservative but often a decisive vote, is expressing concern about the impact of a federal law that prevents married gay couples from receiving a range of benefits afforded straight married Americans.
    
Kennedy's comment came as other conservative justices on the court seemed skeptical about whether they should even proceed with the case over a challenge to the Defense of Marriage Act.
    
The court is hearing arguments in the case Wednesday on its second day of hearings on gay rights issues.
