U.S. Supreme Court: the Day Has Come!

After announcing tuesday's rulings, Chief Justice John Roberts told that all the remaining opinions of the U.S. Supreme Court will be released this Wednesday at 10 a.m.

The Supreme Court has yet to decide Hollingsworth v. Perry, challenging California's gay marriage ban (Proposition 8); and United States v. Windsor, challenging the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).

After numerous days of non-decisions in the both cases, the court has added Wednesday as a final day for this term. Then, the Supreme Court is expected to announce the two opinions this Wednesday, at 10 a.m., the last day of the court's session before it recesses for the summer.

There are a number of possible outcomes, which range from effectively allowing equal marriage across the U.S., to letting Proposition 8 and DOMA stand.

Wednesday June 26, the day has come!
