NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A panel discussion set Tuesday at Tulane University Law School will deal with the U.S. Supreme Court's recent rulings on same-sex marriage.

The discussion is part of the law school's observance of Constitution Day, the federally observed anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution in 1787.

Participants in the discussion will include Tulane Law School professors.

It will include an exploration of possible conflicts in states that ban gay marriage posed by the Supreme Court ruling that struck part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act. The court said the federal government couldn't deny federal benefits to gay couples married in states where gay marriage is legal.
