Supreme Court to Hear Challenge to California Gay Marriage Ban Today

Passed in 2008, a hundred years ago in politics time


The Supreme Court is preparing to hear arguments challenging California's ban on gay marriage, in a historic case that could have sweeping implications for all states. 

Lawyers representing one lesbian and one gay couple from California will try to persuade the nine Supreme Court justices Tuesday to strike down the state's voter-approved ban on same-sex marriages and to declare that gay couples can marry nationwide.
