Several hoping to get a ticket to watch the Supreme Court - Mar 26th, 2013 - National

The question of same-sex marriage and the right of Americans to protect marriage will be decided.

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.

Meanwhile in Washington D.C., a march has been organized by the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) and a broad coalition of pro-family organizations. The group has gathered at the National Mall and marched to the Supreme Court and then return to the Mall for a rally.
