Facebook, Google, Apple and hundreds of big companies come together to support marriage equality

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.
