Telephone lines were open for comments on same-sex marriage as a distant view of the U.S. Supreme Court building was shown.

Washington Post Supreme Court reporter Robert Barnes spoke by telephone, reviewing the oral argument earlier in the day in the Supreme Court case United States v. Windsor, the challenge to the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). He also talked about the history of the case that involved Edith Windsor being required to pay more than $300,000 in inheritance taxes following the death of her partner of over 40 years which she would not have been taxed if her spouse was a man.

A video clip was shown of Edith Windsor talking to reporters on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court after the oral arguments. close
