Ruth Bader Ginsburg: DOMA may go before the Supreme Court by Next Year


Ruth Bader Ginsburg tells folks at University of Colorado in Boulder that DOMA may be on the Supreme Court's docket next year.

HuffPo reports:
She was asked a student-submitted question about the equal-protection clause and whether the nation's high court would consider it applying to sexual orientation.

Ginsburg said with a smile that she couldn't answer the question. She said she could not talk about matters that would come to the court, and that the Defense of Marriage Act would probably be up soon.

"I think it's most likely that we will have that issue before the court toward the end of the current term," she said.
If you don't know, DOMA's oral arguments are scheduled for Sept. 27.

She looks so frail. I hope she will be around to have a say.
