Courts - SCOTUS has announced that it will review the constitutionality of both the federal Defense of Marriage Act and California’s Proposition 8

That is per SCOTUSblog, more coming. Check back this evening when some good commentaries are available, or/and follow SCOTUSblog directly.

The Prop. 8 case page is here; the DOMA case granted cert is Windsor.
