The Court spent the first 40 minutes of oral argument in Windsor addressing whether the justices even have the power under Article III to decide the case. The justices explored the President’s responsibility under the Take Care Clause of the Constitution to enforce the law, and whether the President also has an obligation to either enforce or abandon enforcement of a law that the Administration considers unconstitutional. Windsor presents a very unusual situation in which the government agrees with the legal rationale of the lower court’s ruling against the government, but nevertheless wants the Supreme Court to hear the case and strike down DOMA. The questioning and dialogue in these clips goes to the heart of whether the President’s obligation to enforce the law or whether the more than $300,000 in benefits owed to Ms. Windsor according to the lower court ruling is sufficient to allow the Court to consider the case.
