A friend-of-the-court brief has been filed with the U.S. Supreme Court by 379 companies in hopes of pressing the high court to overturn the lower court’s ban on same-sex marriage in four states. According to USA Today, among these companies includes Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, Google, Coca-Cola and Johnson & Johnson. The brief argues that prohibiting same-sex marriage makes it difficult to recruit and train employees. The brief says there is great value in diversity and inclusion in the workplace. The Supreme Court also said yesterday that it will hear arguments in April on whether states can ban same-sex marriage. The brief also says that inconsistent state laws leads to confusion, tension and diminished employee morale.

The case could be a high-profile test to the Justice Department’s ability to prosecute sitting lawmakers given the fact they already have a legal battle over whether the evidence gathered is protected by the Constitution’s Speech and Debate Clause. There has been a hearing ordered by the federal district court on the case.
