A three-judge panel representing the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals is set to meet Monday, Sept. 8, to consider Latta v. Otter—the challenge to Idaho's same-sex marriage ban that made headlines across the country in May when Judge Candy Dale ruled that the ban violated the U.S. Constitution after four couples sued Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter and Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden.

The 9th Circuit will also consider two other challenges to same-sex marriage bans: Jackson v. Abercrombie (Hawaii), and Sevcik v. Sandoval (Nevada).

Since public interest in all three cases is likely to be high, the court has created a website where the curious will be able to live stream oral arguments for each case, respectively.

Proceedings are set to begin at 2 p.m. MST, and the public is encouraged to check the streaming site regularly for case updates.
