Swarthmore College Professor of Political Science Carol Nackenoff, an authority on American politics and the author of Oxford Bibliography's guide to the Supreme Court, is available for comment on today's Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage.

Nackenoff’s initial thoughts on today’s ruling: "While not unexpected given Kennedy's rational basis plus animus rulings in Romer, Lawrence, and Windsor, this is a monumental ruling. Kennedy overcame his federalism concerns."

To speak with Nackenoff about this case or future Supreme Court rulings, please contact Mark Anskis (610-328-8271 /manskis1@swarthmore.edu) in the Swarthmore communications office.
