Hear Ye, Hear Ye

Via SCOTUSblog, here are the audios of the arguments made today before the Supreme Court on marriage equality.  Note: audio auto-starts.

Question 1: Does the Constitution require states to recognize same-sex marriage? [Transcript.]

Question 2: Whether states can prohibit same-sex marriages but nonetheless be required to recognize same-sex marriages that legally took place somewhere else. [Transcript.]

One bark on “Hear Ye, Hear Ye

  1. I can’t tell you how cool it is to be able to read the transcript within hours. That’s a blast.

    That said, having just plowed through 70+ pages of just the first question, the respondent’s case is quite pathetic. They claim marriage is all about “keeping kids with their biological mom and dad”. That’s just lame. As Justice Ginsburg pointed out, what about a couple in their 70s. Or childless couples. Or adoptive kids. Wow…

    I was worried when I read the petitioner’s case, but then I read the respondent’s side, and I was totally underwhelmed.
