Below are the audio and transcripts of oral arguments made in the same-sex marriage case heard by the Supreme Court today (Obergefell v. Hodges). Justices heard each side present arguments in answer to two questions:
1. Does the 14th Amendment require states to issue marriage licenses to two people of the same sex?
2. Does the 14th Amendment require states to recognize same-sex marriages licensed in other states?
The Court will render a ruling on these questions by the end of June. In the meantime, you can listen to or read the arguments from both sides below.
