[VIDEO] NYU Local Talks Politics: What’s Up With Same-Sex Marriage’s Legal Future?

As you have probably heard by now (or seen everyone’s red-and-equal-sign Facebook profile photo), same-sex marriage came to the Supreme Court last week. The Nine heard from supporters and opposers on the legality of the Defense of Marriage Act and Prop 8 – two cases that could have tidal-wave shifts on the state of these laws across the country. Although cable news provided their fair share of coverage on the issue, we felt that the serious constitutional implications of the issue did not get their time of day.

We [the National Section Editors, John Surico and Jeremy Unger] spoke with NYU politics professor and law school affiliate Christine Harrington – for politics majors, you know her as the professor that teaches “Civil Liberties,” “Law and Society” and a few other constitutional seminars. Also, she predicted the outcome of the Obamacare case… so here’s our conversation with her about the legal battle for same-sex marriage in America.
