Supreme Court Watch: Will Today Be the Day?
June 24, 2013 by Maureen McCarty, HRC Associate Director of Digital Media
This morning media is huddled just outside the Supreme Court, waiting for rulings on the 11 remaining cases, two of which are historic marriage equality cases.
Windsor v. U.S., challenges the constitutionality of a critical section of the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act. Hollingsworth v. Perry challenges Proposition 8, California's constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage in the state.
A win in either of these cases would mark a monumental point in our fight for equality. Visit www.HRC.org/SupremeCourt for more on the potential outcomes from the Court and to show your support for marriage equality.
And stay tuned for more live updates and analysis.
Updated: The Court will return tomorrow at 10 a.m. to issue more rulings on the remaining cases. According to SCOTUSblog, tomorrow will not be the final decision day. The rulings on the two marriage equality cases could come down at any time.
