Supreme Court considers same-sex marriage

The Supreme Court is hearing arguments Monday in an important case over same-sex marriage. The court punted on the issue in the past before it had its conservative supermajority.

The case centers around a Colorado graphic designer who argues that she doesn’t want to design wedding websites for same-sex couples because of her religious beliefs, even though a state law bans discrimination based on sexual orientation.

Here & Now‘s Scott Tong speaks with Dahlia Lithwick. She writes about the courts and the law for Slate. She’s author of “Lady Justice: Women, the Law, and the Battle to Save America.”
