People in Washington, D.C., have already begun camping out to try to attend the Supreme Court's hearings on Proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act, which are set for Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively.

From the Associated Press:

Lines frequently form in advance for the free tickets to high-profile arguments, but five days before a case is particularly early. For last year's three days of arguments over the Affordable Care Act, the line began about three days early.
