Marriage Equality Goes Forward In Nevada

Nevada has been at the center of a legal ping-pong match over same-sex marriage since Tuesday, when the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals struck down the state's constitutional ban.

Clark County Clerk Diana Alba has been preparing for months. So how is the clerk's office handling the change? And what does she expect as the first same-sex marriage licenses are issued in Nevada?
