Washington, DC - The United States Supreme Court will take on two cases involving the constitutionality of gay marriage for the first time in court history.

The case on Tuesday involves California's Proposition 8, a constitutional amendment California voters approved in 2008 defining marriage as between one man and one woman.

The case on Wednesday involves the Defense of Marriage Act, a federal law that prohibits federal benefits from being given to gay couples who are married in states where gay marriage is legal. 

The nine supreme court justices are expected to decide the cases in part on the Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution.

On Tuesday's Good Morning Show, Patrick Phillippi interviewed attorney David Freedman about potential outcomes of the case.
