How to watch live online coverage of the US Supreme Court’s decision to strike down a law restricting the public display of gay marriage
An online tool designed to track the coverage of any state’s high court in real time is making it easier for users to find out how the court is doing in the public interest.
The tool, which allows users to monitor state court decisions from the US Constitution and other sources, lets users view the court’s vote and court decisions on issues from same-sex marriage to the fate of the Affordable Care Act, as well as the fate, status and future of state and local governments.
The tool has already been used to track court decisions that have ruled against LGBT rights in states like Alabama and Alabama State, according to the Washington Post.
Users can also see which court has issued decisions that do not explicitly protect the rights of LGBT people.
The tool, known as a “basket of rights” index, was created by the Equal Justice Initiative, a group dedicated to advancing equal rights for all Americans.
One of the indexes’ most prominent features is the number of times a state has been included in the index, according a news release from the group.
The group has previously used the tool to track judicial decisions that were critical to the passage of LGBT-inclusive laws, and to track which state’s Supreme Court has voted to strike them down.
The index has also helped users find out whether the court has voted in favor of a bill that protects transgender people from discrimination in the workplace.
Users will be able to filter by a wide range of topics and find the court that has issued the most notable cases related to those issues.
The states that have been included on the index have included a wide array of issues that are at the center of the current legal battles, including the Defense of Marriage Act, gay marriage, the Affordable Health Care Act and the fate and future fate of government agencies.
The court has already taken a number of actions that will benefit LGBT people, including striking down an Arizona law that would have forced transgender people to use the bathrooms that match their gender identity, striking down a Utah law that forced people to provide a sex-change operation or a measure of consent in cases of rape or incest, and striking down legislation that would prohibit local governments from passing laws that discriminate against LGBT people in housing, employment and public accommodations.
As the legal battles unfold, the Equality Index can be used to help monitor the progress of the court on these issues, as they take shape.
“The equality index is a powerful tool for the LGBT community to track how courts are advancing our rights and protecting our rights, as it tracks the progress on equality in the United States,” said David Williams, executive director of the Equality Initiative.
“It will provide our community with a sense of what the Supreme Court is thinking and what is being done to protect our civil rights, and we are excited to be able use this tool to help make sure all Americans have equal access to the legal protections they deserve.”
The Equality Index is now available in five different countries, including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, and the Netherlands.
