One way or another it looks as though history will be made on Wednesday morning at 10:00 a.m. It is at that time that the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to release its decision on two cases, Hollingsworth v. Perry, the Proposition 8 case, and U.S. v. Windsor, the case challenging the constitutionality of the federal Defense of Marriage Act.

After concluding today’s session Chief Justice John Roberts announced that opinions on the three remaining cases before the court will be released tomorrow, prior to the courts scheduled summer vacation.

The Proposition 8 case will decide the fate of marriage equality in the state of California while the “Windsor case” will decide whether certain aspects of the Defense of Marriage act are discriminatory and therefore unconstitutional.
