Supreme Court Keeps LGBT Americans Waiting

The U.S. Supreme Court did not issue rulings in either of two landmark cases dealing with marriage equality and the Federal Defense of Marriage Act today.
The Court will issue its next batch of rulings on Monday at 10 a.m. Eastern, when some advocates are anticipating decisions in both Hollingsworth v. Perry, the case challenging California's Proposition 8, and U.S. v. Windsor, which deals with the constitutionality of DOMA.
The Court issued three decisions today, leaving 11 cases with pending decisions. The volume of cases yet to be decided has some reporters, including those at SCOTUSBlog, anticipating that the Court will add at least one additional decision day to its calendar, since handing down 11 rulings at once is almost unprecedented for the nation's highest court. The Advocate will keep readers informed as any additional decision days are announced.
