"A legal expert contends the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to rule on same-sex marriage will determine the fate of Kansas' ban on the unions.  But University of Kansas Constitutional Law Professor Richard Levy thinks the state could still fight implementation of a judgment allowing gay marriage.

Levy said, 'It’s possible that there could be various kinds of state laws passed that test exactly what the limits are, and in the process slow its recognition.'

Levy thinks Kansas would still eventually be forced to recognize same-sex marriages if the high court determines they're a constitutional right."
