Legacy?

“The legacy of Lawrence v. Texas…is still up for grabs. And it’s in the hands of not only state judges and legislators but also the country’s next generation. If they accept their lesbian and gay neighbors as full and equal citizens, as we think they will, Lawrence will be for gays what Brown [v Board of Education] was for blacks: a judicial contribution to a revolution in public attitudes as well as to the law.” [Slate]

      This was an interesting article in Slate. The point to note is that this was a 6-3 decision, which would probably be a 5-4 decision today. One more change in the Supreme Court makeup and it could be reversed.
