Adam Serwer (Mother Jones) and Sahil Kapur (Talking Points Memo)

On Adamize, Sahil tells Adam that the Supreme Court will likely avoid ruling on Prop 8 but strike down DOMA. Adam notes that the attorneys defending both laws seemed unwilling to substantively criticize same-sex marriage. They consider the parallels with the Court’s past rulings on interracial marriage and abortion. Could Clarence Thomas surprise liberals by voting to strike down DOMA?

Finally, what kind of legacy will the Roberts Court leave on gay rights?
