The Faces Behind the Case, Hurricane Awareness, LA International Film Festival

The Faces Behind the Case (4:28) Jon Robicheaux and Derek Penton filed a lawsuit challenging Louisiana’s ban on same sex marriage last November. Last week a federal court judge in New Orleans upheld Louisiana’s stance, snapping a streak of over 20 federal cases so far that have stuck down similar state bans. While the final ruling will likely end up with the U.S. Supreme Court, Charlie Whinham asks just what makes up a modern family and who decides? SHARE
