I just received a bulletin announcing that the Supreme Court will be hearing the challenge to California’s Prop 8 (Hollingsworth v. Perry) will be heard on March 26, and the challenge to DOMA (U.S. V. Windsor) on March 27. The big day is almost upon us, and I feel extremely anxious. It’s kind of amazing the extent to which I have come to personally identify with this issue. I wish I could be there to hear these cases, but I can’t take time off to go stand in line all night for an event that I can’t possibly influence.
The Court’s ruling could come down as early as April, but with cases like this I would expect not to hear until late May, early June.
