On Trial in a Federal Courtroom: The Tradition of Marriage

Hosted by

Gays and lesbians can raise children, but in most states they can't be married. California's ban on same-sex marriage is on trial in a case that may end up in the US Supreme Court. We get a progress report on the issues being raised in a San Francisco courtroom and the impact of the public proceedings on same-sex parents and their children. Also, an update on disaster relief in Haiti.
