SCOTUS Coverage Roundup

This was a banner week for the LGBTQ community, with the Supreme Court’s rulings on Proposition 8 (no standing for an appeal, sent back to the lower court, which means the lower-court decision overturning Prop. 8 holds) and the Defense of Marriage Act (section 3, banning federal recognition of same-sex marriage, is unconstitutional)—not to mention the Voting Rights Act decision, which could negatively impact the LGBTQ community. And it was hella busy for NLGJA members and LGBTQ journalists. Here’s a sampling of your awesome coverage. (We surely didn’t get it all – please add what we missed to the comments.) Thanks to Jen Christensen for researching and compiling links!
