Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts's lesbian cousin will attend the marriage-equality arguments (Prop 8 and DOMA) that the Court will hear today and tomorrow.
Jean Podrasky says:
"[M]y cousin...will begin considering the fate of two of the most important cases impacting the rights of the LGBT community ever to go before the Court—the challenges to California's Proposition 8 and the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). I want nothing more than to marry my wonderful girlfriend. I know that my cousin is a good man. I feel confident that John is wise enough to see that socity is becoming more accepting of the humanity of same-sex couples and the simple truth that we deserve to be treated with dignity, respect, and equality under the law."
