Still No SCOTUS Gay Marriage Ruling

By Charlotte Robinson, June 17, 2013
We spent the morning on the US Supreme Court Blog waiting to see if perhaps today they would decide on United States v. Windsor which challenges the constitutionality of the so-called Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) & Hollingsworth v. Perry the challenge to California’s Proposition 8. Though the clerks advised us that it was unlikely to happen today we waited. At 10:26 EST SCOTUS's Amy Howe stated, “To be clear & to answer a lot of questions: No same-sex marriage, affirmative action, or voting rights cases today. We don't know when we will get them, but next chance is Thursday at 10A.” This process seems slower than watching paint dry but yet exciting being actually on SCOTUS Blog with over 20,000 other Americans waiting & hoping for a decision. The consensus is that though we will be going through this process yet again this coming Thursday, the decision in these cases will most likely not be decided until the end of Supreme Court session next week. With LGBT pride events happening this month across America you would think that these cases would have been decided by now. The question being: Is this a good or bad sign that the US Supreme Court appears to be dragging out their decisions? Updates to Come…:)
