Marriage equality hearing Wednesday

Supporters of marriage equality are planning to show up outside the U.S. Courthouse in Eugene Wednesday morning, May 14. Federal Judge Michael McShane will be hearing oral arguments regarding Oregon's ban on same-sex marriages. He will also be considering an effort by the National Organization for Marriage, a national anti-gay group, to intervene in the case.

Supporters will be gathering at 8 am and the hearing is scheduled at 9 am. The proceedings will be livestreamed to an overflow room in the courthouse.

After the hearing, about 11 am, a joint press conference is planned featuring plaintiffs in the case, their lawyers and leaders of Basic Rights Oregon and the ACLU of Oregon.
