With a verdict from the court expected sometime in June, the local activists that put up their pro-equality billboard last time don’t see a reason to do it again.

    We’ll probably find out Monday or Tuesday what the Supreme Court has ruled.

    I am betting a 6-3 ruling ridding of gay marriage bans for good, with Kennedy writing the majority opinion, and Roberts writing a concurrence on discrimination grounds, and Scalia writing a scathing dissent (redundant for him).

    I think someone actually changed it, and it made the front page of Reddit the other day.
