Breaking News: No Ruling From Supreme Court Today On Prop 8, DOMA

After holding out to nearly the last minute, the Supreme Court continues to drive us crazy by not ruling today on either of the cases affecting gay marriage,.

In the case of U.S  v. Edith Windsor, an 83-year-old widow is challenging a provision in the Defense of Marriage act that forced her to pay more than $360,000 in estate tax when her wife passed away. In Hollingsworth v. Perry, the case challenges California’s Proposition 8, which instituted a ban on same-sex marriage.

The Supreme Court generally releases opinions on Mondays and Thursdays, so we can (hopefully) expect rulings later this week. The way these drama queens are acting they could hold out until the last possible moment.
