WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments over same-sex marriage on April 28 and make audio of the proceedings available later that day.
The gay marriage cases mark the only time this term that the court has agreed to the quick release of audio recordings. But the court is continuing its ban on providing video of its sessions or even live-streamed audio.
The arguments on gay marriage have been allotted two-and-a-half hours on the final Tuesday in April. Audio and the transcript of the proceedings should be available on the court’s website by 2 p.m. EDT, the court said Thursday in a statement.
The justices denied a request from The Associated Press and other media outlets for the quick release of audio of the argument Wednesday over the tax subsidies that are part of the health care overhaul. That audio will be made available today.
