379 of the biggest companies in the world, including Microsoft, Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google have teamed up to file a brief in the US Supreme Court in support of marriage equality.
The brief was filed yesterday by the Morgan Lewis law firm; it makes a business case to legalize same-sex marriage in the US. The brief states that the current legal standing on same-sex marriage is a burden on employers and employees and makes it “increasingly hard to conduct business.”
The justices will hear arguments for the case in April and a ruling will follow at a later date.
