SCOTUS Marriage Equality Liveblog

We've been waiting... And waiting... And waiting. But now, it's finally here. The US Supreme Court has dropped its final rulings, and two of them are on marriage equality.


7:03 AM: SCOTUS just ruled DOMA unconstitutional! In a 5-4 ruling, The Court explicitly described DOMA as discriminatory & illegal. There's more to come soon.

7:23 AM: After a few minutes of rumors and confusion, we now have a better idea of what's happening to Prop 8.

We're not 100% sure just yet, but it looks like SCOTUS is about to restore marriage equality to California this year! We in Nevada (and elsewhere) will have to wait a little longer.

Stay tuned here for more breaking news and more in-depth analysis on what's happening today.

7:27 AM: This was another 5-4 ruling. But in this case, Chief Justice Roberts joined the progressive Justices. And yes, we now know for sure marriage equality will soon resume in California!
