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.

    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.
