Waiting for the Supreme same-sex marriage showdown

People hoping for a chance to witness Supreme Court oral arguments this week in the two challenges to same-sex marriage laws  began lining up – or paying others to line up – outside the courthouse on Friday. Monday morning a wintry mix of snow, rain and wind did not quell their resolve to be a part of history.

Tuesday the justices take up the challenge to California’s same-sex marriage ban in Hollingsworth v. Perry, and Wednesday the court will hear U.S. v. Windsor, the challenge to the federal Defense of Marriage Act. DC Dicta will be tweeting before and after arguments and later recap on this blog and on LawyersUSAOnline.com.
