Supreme Court Arguments on Same-Sex Marriage
March 25, 2013
The Supreme Court hears oral arguments in the cases involving same-sex marriage and C-SPAN has a number of programs on this subject. Two federal cases involving Proposition 8 have been argued and can be found in the C-SPAN Video Library. These are Perry v. Brown and Perry v. Schwarzenegger.
The C-SPAN Congressional Chronicle also contains the original 1996 Senate and House debate on the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). That debate took place in the House on July 12, 1996 and in the Senate on September 10, 1996.
Use the C-SPAN Video Library to follow the actions of the Court and to research the background on these cases.
