Transcript

The countdown is underway for U.S. Supreme Court watchers.

The court's session ends at the end of June and on any of the remaining Mondays this month, the court is expected to rule on its two major cases: California's Proposition 8 and the Federal Defense of Marriage Act.

The speculation on what that ruling could be is reaching a legal boiling point. And it's not only because of the high-stakes issues involved. It's also because of the nuanced legal technicalities surrounding the decision.

I'm sure they will wait until the 24th, the last possible day they have.

Seems like their standard for high profile cases.

Wouldn't it be cool if they wait until June 27th? Which is the anniversary (44th) of the Stonewall Riots! :-)
