(FOXNEWS) — The Supreme Court is expected to hear arguments in late March for two prominent cases that could test the bounds of laws restricting gay marriage, Fox News has learned.

The first case will be argued March 26, involving a dispute over California’s constitutional ban on gay marriage known as Proposition 8. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals earlier struck down that rule.

The second case is expected to be argued the following day, on a challenge to part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act.
