    The Supreme Court announced that tomorrow will be the final day for this session and all remaining cases will be addressed. There are only 3 cases left to address: 1) DOMA 2) Prop8 3) A case regarding attorney/client assistance as related to the Hobbs Act.

    This will be a big day for the gay community. 10:00 AM EDST. I suspect the Castro will be busy tomorrow night with either celebration (let's hope so) or protests!

    Well, like Monday's affirmative action case, some get no final decision, but are sent back to a lower court for further consideration. I didn't follow the DOMA and Prop 8 cases closely enough to know if there might be issues there for further adjudication by lower courts.

    Obviously I'd like a favorable decision tomorrow, and be done with this. And as you say, if the Court has made a decision, tomorrow is the day we'll finally know. A lot of tension until then.

    I too would like a favorable decision tomorrow, especially on DOMA which was one of the worst things President Clinton ever did in his presidency.

    Shortly after DOMA was struck down, President Barack Obama released a statement celebrating the decision. "This was discrimination enshrined in law. It treated loving, committed gay and lesbian couples as a separate and lesser class of people. The Supreme Court has righted that wrong, and our country is better off for it," he said.
