Partisan split marks high court gay marriage cases - Article Photos 1/1

FILE – In this Feb. 7, 2012, file photo Ted Olson, right, lead Co-Counsel for the American Foundation for Equal Rights, seen with Proposition 8 paintiffs, Jeff Zarrillo, left, and Paul Katami, middle, comments on the announcement that California's same-sex marriage ban is unconstitutional during a American Foundation for Equal Rights conference in Los Angeles. A continuing distinct partisan divide is present in the gay marriage cases at the U.S. Supreme Court, set for arguments March 26-27, 2013, even though a brief on behalf of more than 100 prominent Republicans calls for marriage equality. The split is most in evidence in legal briefs filed with the court by state attorneys general. (AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes, File)
