NEXT MONDAY: Ninth Circuit Court To Hear Marriage Cases From NV, ID, & HI

Via press release from NCLR:

On September 8th the Court will hear oral arguments beginning at 1 p.m. Pacific at the James R Browning US Courthouse, 95 7th Street, San Francisco, to laws banning marriage equality in Idaho, Nevada, and Hawaii. The National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) and Boise, Idaho attorneys Deborah A. Ferguson and Craig Durham of Ferguson Durham LLP represent four same-sex couples challenging Idaho laws banning marriage equality. Lambda Legal and the law firms of O’Melveny & Myers LLP and Snell & Wilmer LLP represent eight same-sex couples challenging Nevada laws banning marriage. There will be media availability for the legal teams and plaintiffs after arguments. Since the Supreme Court’s June 2013 decision striking down the Defense of Marriage Act, the Seventh, Sixth, Tenth, and Fourth Circuits have heard oral arguments in marriage equality cases. The Tenth Circuit issued rulings on June 25th and July 17th in cases from Utah and Oklahoma. The Fourth Circuit issued a ruling on July 28th in a case from Virginia. All three decisions held that same-sex couples have a fundamental right to marry.

That’s a 4PM start for east coasters, so we’ll go into the evening here with live tweets, analysis and video as it becomes available.
