On Tuesday, the Supreme Court will hear one hour of oral arguments in the case challenging California's Prop 8, which bans same-sex marriage. This morning we'll review some of the arguments that will be made by both sides.
We'll begin with the sponsors of Prop 8, those in favor of upholding the ban, as they will be the first to present their case next week.
Joining Take Two to preview those arguments is John Eastman, a constitutional law professor at Chapman University and Chairman of the Board at the National Organization for Marriage. He also filed an amicus brief in support of Prop 8.
After the justices hear from the supporters of Prop 8, they'll turn to the lawyers representing the two California same-sex couples who challenged the measure.
Joining us to preview those arguments is Courtney Joslin, she's a Constitutional Law Professer at the UC Davis Law School. She filed an amicus brief in the Prop 8 case and co-authored an amicus brief in the DOMA case.
