9th Circuit hears oral arguments in Hawaii marriage equality suit (audio)
by Larry Geller
The plaintiffs in Natasha Jackson, et al v. Neil Abercrombie, et al have already married. Hawaii has now legalized marriage equality and marriages are taking place.
The parties now agree. So this case should be moot, right?
Yet the Hawaii Family Forum, as intervener, argued, not quite yet. The Supreme Court could still strike down Hawaii’s law.
Of course, it didn’t sound quite that simple. Check out the audio in the player below, or download a copy to your own computer. While listening, it’s good to keep in mind that all sides in this case submitted briefs, so everyone knows what they are talking about, except possibly us.
