Wednesday round-up

Yesterday’s oral arguments in the challenges to state bans on same-sex marriage continue to spawn coverage and commentary.  Andrew Hamm rounded up initial coverage and commentary in a post last night for this blog.  Other coverage comes from NPR’s Nina Totenberg, who also recorded a video on the cases with this blog’s Tom Goldstein.  And at ISCOTUSnow, Edward Lee predicts the winner in the oral arguments based on the number of questions for each side. Commentary comes from Lisa Keen at the Keen News Service, Leslie Griffin at Hamilton and Griffin on Rights, Noah Novogrodsky at the Human Rights at Home Blog, Bill Blum at TruthDig, Ruthann Robson at the Constitutional Law Prof Blog, Carl Esbeck at The Public Discourse, Ryan Anderson at The Daily Signal and USA Today, from Mark Strasser at Hamilton and Griffin on Rights, and Howard Wasserman at PrawfsBlawg.           


  • NPR’s Nina Totenberg previews today’s oral argument in Glossip v. Gross, the challenge to Oklahoma’s lethal injection protocol.
  • Michael Graczyk of the Associated Press (via Yahoo! News) reports on the case of a Texas inmate who is scheduled to die tonight but has asked the Court to block his execution.
