WASHINGTON (AP) — A woman from California says she and her lesbian partner will attend the gay marriage argument at the Supreme Court, courtesy of her cousin, Chief Justice John Roberts.

Jean Podrasky says she and Roberts are first cousins, and that he knows she is gay.

Podrasky tells the Los Angeles Times that she will be in a seat reserved for guests of the justices when the court hears the highly anticipated case on California’s ban on same-sex marriage.

In a separate open letter, Podrasky writes that Roberts is “a good man” and that she is confident he knows that a ruling “in favor of equality” is in line with the views of most Americans.

Podrasky was not immediately available to comment Monday. A court spokeswoman said Roberts had no comment.
