Sotomayor: Same-sex marriage decisions will be a ‘turning point’ for gays

Justice Sonia M. Sotomayor  — or “Sonia from the Bronx,” as she likes to be called — said the U.S. Supreme Court’s rulings on the constitutionality of California’s Proposition 8 and the federal Defense of Marriage Act will have an impact on gay Americans, regardless of how the court comes down.

The will be “a turning point for those whose lives will be changed, for better or for worse,” Sotomayor  said at an event Sunday in Cooper Union, a private college in Manhattan’s East Village, according to the Wall Street Journal. Decisions in those cases are expected just before the court wraps up its term at the end of June.

Sotomayor made it clear she wasn’t showing the court’s cards, though, adding: “just so you’re all clear, I’m not predicting anything.”
