The Proposition 8 Ruling (in simple language)

It’s a little long (but way shorter than the 138 page ruling) and vey clear. This passage made me a little giddy.

So what happens next?

Nothing happens yet. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals will review the case. After that, the U.S. Supreme Court will probably review it, regardless of what the 9th Circuit says. If the current ruling survives that, same-sex marriage will essentially become legal in every state. There was nothing to limit this holding to Prop. 8.

The author goes on to explain this is far from guaranteed, but it still gives me goosebumps. [via Marco]
