    There is a case in Nevada that is challenging the anti same-sex marriage amendment of the Nevada Constitution and trying to prevent it from going to the Supreme Court. Sandoval is arguing that the subject is a state issue and shouldn't go beyond the State Supreme Court. The State Supreme court, though, doesn't have the power to rule State Constitution unconstitutional because it is bound by that very document. Treating people equally falls under the jurisdiction of the federal govt.
