GAY MARRIAGE-SUPREME COURT
SAN FRANCISCO All Karen Golinski wanted was to enroll her spouse in her employer-sponsored health plan. Four years later, her request still is being debated by the likes of former Attorney General Edwin Meese, a slew of U.S. senators and the Obama administration. Golinski is married to another woman and works for the federal government and her family business has morphed into a multi-pronged legal attack by gay rights activists to overturn the 1996 law that defines marriage as the union of a man and a woman. The U.S. Supreme Court is poised to decide Tuesday, Nov. 30, if it will take up Golinski's case along with three other challenges to the federal Defense of Marriage Act. By Lisa Leff.
