Everyone, from legal eagles to the peanut gallery, agree that this will go to the US Supreme Court. Meantime, let the celebration commence! Friend of the site Aidan Dunn shows the back of his head in this shot. From the well-named Boulder Daily Camera out of Colorado. News of the same day: the dismissal of Lt. Choi under DADT. Ironic juxtaposition. The nation watches.
“Sheree Red Bornand, right, hugs Aidan Dunn after hearing the decision in the United States District Court proceedings challenging Proposition 8 outside of the Phillip Burton Federal Building in San Francisco, Wednesday, Aug. 4, 2010. A person close to the case says a federal judge has overturned California’s same-sex marriage ban in a landmark case that could eventually land before the U.S. Supreme Court. Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker made his ruling Wednesday in a lawsuit filed by two gay couples who claimed the voter-approved ban violated their civil rights.” (via Boulder Daily Camera.

Update: the back of Aidan’s head gets famouser and gaymouser by the minute. The photo was printed in papers in Mexico, India and other foreign and remote locales. Closer to home, the dubious honor of the front page above the fold of the USA Today.
