Live Video Streaming of Oral Arguments in Gay Marriage Cases


On September 8, 2014, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit will hear oral arguments in three cases involving state laws banning same-sex marriage in Hawaii, Idaho and Nevada.  The arguments will begin at 1 p.m. in Courtroom One of the James R. Browning U.S. Courthouse, 95 7th St., San Francisco.

The court strongly encourages interested persons to use the Internet to watch the oral arguments via live video streaming from the courtroom.  To access the stream, visit the court website – www.ca9.uscourts.gov – and click on the link under the beige-colored bar labeled “Live Oral Arguments.”  Streaming will commence a few minutes prior to the start of the proceedings.

Public seating in Courtroom One will be extremely limited and likely to be quickly filled.  Those unable to get a courtroom seat will be able to watch live video in viewing areas elsewhere in the building.  This will be the same video streamed to Internet viewers.
