FILE - In this March 6, 2013 file photo Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy speaks in Sacramento, Calif. When the Supreme Court struck down part of an anti-gay marriage law, Kennedy took pains in his majority opinion to say the ruling applied only to legally married same-sex couples seeking benefits from the federal government. But judges and lawyers representing same-sex couples are already using Kennedy's language and reasoning in other cases about the right to marry. AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli, File)
