The Supreme Court will release the audio and a transcript of Tuesday's oral argument in the same-sex marriage cases. The entire argument will last two and a half hours.

The argument will begin at 10 am. The first 90 minutes is on the question whether states can refuse to grant marriage licenses to gay couples. Then another hour is on the question whether states can refuse to recognize the marriages of gay couples that were legally performed elsewhere.

The Court will provide the audio and transcript of the argument on the first question as soon as the digital files are available for upload to the court's website. That should be around 12:30 pm.

The audio and transcript from the second question should come around around 2 pm.
