Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey says she’s cautiously optimistic the Supreme Court will rule in favor of gay marriage. Healey is planning to be in the courtroom Tuesday when the nation’s highest court hears oral arguments in four states’ same-sex marriage cases. “It’s my hope that the court will rule the right way … and allow people to marry the person they love,” Healey said in an interview with The Associated Press. “This is an issue that obviously I care deeply about, that this office has cared deeply about for a long time now.” Massachusetts has allowed gay marriages since 2004. It was the first state to legalize full marriage rights for same sex couples.
