The California Supreme Court hears arguments to determine whether the mayor of San Francisco overstepped his authority last February when he authorized marriage licenses for same-sex couples. More than 4,000 gay couples received licenses before the court shut down the City Hall weddings in March. Hear NPR's Richard Gonzales and NPR's Melissa Block.
