as soon as we heard that there was going to be another supreme court case my husband said how are they going to weasel out of it? they can't. they have to actually consider the case of whether same-sex marriage is constitutional. so we will be getting a definitive ruling one way or the other. that's why this is such a big case. >> it took a couple of hours with oral arguments. what happened yesterday? >> reporter: there are nine justices on the court. four seem to be in favor of same-sex marriage. four seem to be opposed. the chief justice -- no, the chief person we're watching, justice kennedy appears to be the swing vote. based on the questions he was asking he is grabbing with two things. on the one hand marriage has been the same between a man and a woman for millenia. that was his word. on the other hand, denying same- sex marriages is an affront to the dignity of gay people. and for those of us court watchers, the word dignity is a bit of a dog whistle because
justice kennedy has used that concept of dignity to strike down cases -- laws against gay people in the past. so that seemed to give a lot of people some hope. but he did genuinely seem to be torn. he doesn't appear to have made up his mind. >> so the justices they could rule in favor of same-sex marriage or they could rule against it but is there a third way maybe a compromise? >> reporter: there is one thing that is possible and that is that the justices could say, let's say you live in kentucky. and where gay marriage is not permitted. and you have traveled to california and you get married in a state that does recognize same-sex marriage and then you travel back to kentucky. the justices could rule that kentucky has to recognize that out of state marriage even though within the borders of kentucky that couple could not get married. it would be complicated. it probably won't happen but there is a third way that this decision could go. >> so will the ruling have an
effect on recent religious laws that have passed? >> reporter: it's possible actually because there's about five or six different ways they could rule here of course and one of the ways that they could rule is to say that gay people are protected from discrimination just like women and minorities. now, if that's the case, then those state laws that permit discrimination against gay people will be called into question just like a law that discriminated against women or minorities would be. based on the questions yesterday the justices weren't taken with the discrimination argument. but if it were able to get five votes for it, other religious freedom laws could also be held unconstitutional. >> we were saying wouldn't you like to be a fly on the wall when they get back together to make the decision. >> i would give anything. they could auction that off for millions. >> thank you. a premature release of twitter's earnings numbers triggers a steep drop in its share price. jill wagner of
