Same-Sex Marriage Debate

People slept on the streets of Washington, D.C., for days to ensure they were able to witness first-hand the Supreme Court hearing opening arguments on the constitutionality of same-sex marriage. On Tuesday, justices heard lawyers debate the gay marriage ban in California and the next day they convened to hear challenges to the Defense of Marriage Act (1996).
