Justice Anthony Kennedy and Gay Rights Decisions

Hosted by

There's a long line forming outside the Supreme Court building on Capitol Hill — mostly people paid to stand there until tomorrow, when the justices will hear arguments on same-sex marriage. After tomorrow's arguments, the Court's majority on same-sex marriage is likely to be determined by Justice Anthony Kennedy. He's “been building toward this moment in the history of gay legal rights in America…for nearly two decades.” That's according to Joan Biskupic, editor in charge of legal affairs for Reuters and author of the recent book, Breaking In: The Rise of Sonia Sotomayor and the Politics of Justice.
