I hate to admit being underinformed, but I blame the baby. (And my privilege to be uninformed...let's face it, that in and of itself is a big honking privilege)

 

Does someone have a rundown on what the Supreme Court deliberations actually mean? When they are intended to be complete? There was a lot of talk about it last week, but I saw no conclusions....

 

Help me, oh informed ones!

No one? I thought someone would have a good run down, or a site that would explain a bit more.

John Aravosis at http://www.americablog.com is going to have his ear to the ground on this issue. He's an activist for gay rights, an attorney, and is located in DC.  His article on the DOMA arguments is here and the one on Prop 8 arguments is here. If you're a bit of a law junkie, you might also want to check out SCOTUSblog.

 

Hope this helps!
