The Supreme Court on Monday released the schedule for oral argument on upcoming cases, including the two marriage equality cases. The court will hear argument on Hollingsworth v Perry, the case involving California’s Prop 8, on March 26, and United States v Windsor, the DOMA case, on March 27. Lyle Denniston at SCOTUSBlog notes that while the court did not explicitly say that the time for those arguments will be more than the usual one hour (30 minutes for each side, “the fact that each is to be heard alone will allow the argument time to be expanded, and that appears likely.”
