WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court will release audio recordings of next week's arguments in two gay marriage cases just a few hours after they conclude.

The court will post audio files and transcripts on its website (http://www.supremecourt.gov ) roughly two hours after the end of the proceedings on March 26 and March 27.

The justices will hear arguments over California's ban on same-sex marriage on Tuesday and the federal Defense of Marriage Act on Wednesday.

The justices have never allowed cameras inside the courtroom, but occasionally provide same-day audio for cases with unusually high public interest.
