Ret. Justice John Paul Stevens' predictions on marriage cases

John Paul Stevens, U.S. Supreme Court justice.
At an event in Arlington, Virginia retired Justice of the Supreme Court John Paul Stevens guesses that the court will dismiss the California challenge for lacking jurisdiction and strike down the Defense of Marriage Act as unfair tax policy.

(h/t Scottie Thomaston, Equality on Trial)

Stevens' prognostications seem to be pretty consistent with most court observers. The consensus (for what that's worth) seems to be narrow rulings on both cases but Prop 8 and DOMA will both be history.
