Gaytterdämmerung: Prop 8 and DOMA Decisions Tomorrow 10am EDT

Tomorrow is the 10th anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court decision Lawrence vs Texas which struck down the nation's remaining sodomy laws, ending the "gay exception" to the Constitution by restoring privacy rights to LGB citizens. It will also be known as the day the fates of the so-called Defense of Marriage Act and Proposition 8 were determined.

The Supreme Court has announced it will release its decisions in United States vs Windsor (DOMA) and Hollingsworth v. Perry (Proposition 8) cases tomorrow. My prediction is that the good guys will win both of them, with DOMA going down 6-3 and Proposition 8 being effectively struck down by either being remanded back to the 9th U.S. Circuit or declared to be improvidently granted by a large majority (possibly even 7-2).
