Calif. gay marriage argument at high court


WASHINGTON (AP) - The nation's highest court hears arguments today on California's voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage.

It's the Supreme Court's first examination of gay rights in 10 years.

People have been waiting in line since Thursday for coveted seats to witness the argument over California's Proposition 8.

Tomorrow, the court will take up the part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act that prevents same-sex couples who are legally married from receiving a range of federal tax, pension and other benefits that otherwise are available to heterosexual married people.
