Same-Sex Marriage Cases Before California High Court
The California Supreme Court today will consider challenges to the state's marriage statutes brought by same-sex couples. The court will hear three hours of oral argument from parties in four lawsuits, all of which challenge the constitutionality of California's marriage statutes and their definition of marriage as a union between a man and a woman. The San Francisco Chronicle reports that a ruling on "the most momentous case the court has heard in decades" is expected within 90 days. Public affair cable network California Channel will carry a live broadcast of oral arguments, and the official California Courts website will feature an archived broadcast of the hearing after March 4.
