Oral Argument Date For DOMA, Prop 8 Cases Set

Exactly one month after shocking the LGBT establishment by agreeing to hear appeals in the Proposition 8 (Hollingsworth v. Perry) and the DOMA (United States v. Windsor) lawsuits, the Supreme Court of the United States announced that oral arguments for these cases would occur on March 26 and March 27, respectively.

The SCOTUSblog reports:

Tuesday, March 26:
12-144 – Hollingsworth v. Perry – constitutionality of California’s “Proposition 8″ ban on same-sex marriage; also, question of standing to appeal
Wednesday, March 27:
12-307 — United States v. Windsor – constitutionality of Section 3 of the federal Defense of Marriage Act’s benefits limited to married opposite-sex couples; also, question of standing for U.S. government and for House GOP leaders to appeal the case
