Today at 2 p.m., the New York State Court of Appeals will hear arguments for and against making New York the second state to recognize gay marriages.

In 2004 and 2005, four same-sex marriage cases made their way through New York’s trial courts and Appellate Division. In the most well-known, Hernandez v.

In each of the three other cases, supporters of gay marriage lost both at the trial level and before the 3rd Department.
