A Quick Roundup of #10thCircuit Hearing

April 10, 2014 at 11:05 am Leave a comment

After originally planning to attend the hearings, I was unable to make the trip. But I’m excited to write a little bit about the oral argument from afar. As we are awaiting the audio and transcripts of the argument, the re are a few quick resources that you may grab your interest.

First, RestoreOurHumanity had the livestream of the immediate response after the hearing completed. The audio feed gave me a few problems, but you will find some other interesting content in addition to the stored livestream. Hopefully that video will be corrected soon. Salt Lake’s Fox13 is also now live streaming their newscast with information from the argument.

The best place for instantaneous reaction from the oral argument was unsurprisingly twitter. I’ve been following the #10thCircuit hashtag, and it is certainly worth a few refresh cycles today. Reporter Ben Winslow, of Fox 13 tweeted that he thought the judges were leaning 2-1 in favor of marriage equality.

Winslow also has some comments in his feed from the plaintiffs, with Derek Kitchen stating that he is “humbled and proud” at the performance of his attorneys and the serious consideration that the three judges provided. For his part, Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes says that he apologized to the plaintiffs for their pain, but that it was his duty to defend the law.

Entry filed under: Marriage equality.
