With gay marriage rulings in view, court to convene Wednesday

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - With two rulings on gay marriage still left to be announced, the Supreme Court said on Tuesday it would convene for the last day of its nine-month term on Wednesday.

Chief Justice John Roberts made the announcement after the nine-member court on Tuesday struck down part of a federal law designed to protect minority voters.

He did not say which rulings the court would announce, but the two biggest rulings still outstanding are due to address same-sex marriage.
