Supreme Court weighs two gay marriage cases this month
Mitchell Katine came to the Supreme Court 10 years ago for the final chapter of Lawrence v. Texas, the landmark gay rights case in which the justices struck down state sodomy laws.

SCOTUS will announce their decisions (if they actually decide to issue an opinion on either case, which they may not) on June 10 or June 17 June 24.
I am cautiously optimistic that they will either find Prop 8 unconstitutional, or send it back to the appeals court, and I am cautiously optimistic that they will find part of DOMA, or all of DOMA, unconstitutional.
We will know on June 10 or June 17 or June 24 at the latest.
