Early sounding from the Washington Post: “Tough questions from Supreme Court on law barring gay marriage”
From the Washington Post story: “The Supreme Court heard oral arguments Tuesday in a landmark case about same-sex marriage, with several justices on both sides of the issue asking sharp questions about California’s law defining marriage as between a man and a woman. Defending the 2008 law that effectively banned same-sex marriage in California, Washington lawyer Charles J. Cooper encountered skeptical questions from at least four justices, including Anthony M. Kennedy, who is considered a potential swing vote in the case.”
From SCOTUS: “The Court will provide the audio recordings and transcripts of the oral arguments in Hollingsworth v. Perry, scheduled to be heard on Tuesday, March 26, and United States v. Windsor, scheduled to be heard on Wednesday, March 27, on an expedited basis through the Court’s Website.
“The Court will post the audio recordings and unofficial transcripts as soon as the digital files are available for uploading to the Website. The audio recordings and transcripts should be available no later than 1 p.m. on March 26 and no later than 2 p.m. on March 27.
“Anyone interested in the proceedings will be able to access the recordings and transcripts directly through links on the homepage of the Court’s Website. The homepage currently provides links to the orders, briefs, and other information about the cases. The Court’s Website address is http://www.supremecourt.gov”
