For the record: Today’s oral arguments in Hollingsworth vs. Perry

by

The U.S. Supreme Court is hearing arguments in a landmark gay marriage case that could make same-sex marriages legal in the States. Today, the court heard arguments against Proposition 8, California’s 2008 law that prohibits same-sex marriage and defines marriage as taking place between a man and a woman. Up on Wednesday are arguments for and against DOMA, the Defence of Marriage act, which bars the federal government from offering some rights to same-sex couples, even if their home state allows them to wed.
