The New Yorker reporter Ariel Levy was with Edith "Edie" Windsor at the apartment of Roberta Kaplan, the lawyer who argued Windsor’s successful challenge to the Defense of Marriage Act, when the SCOTUS ruling came down. As Levy reports:
Kaplan called her mother and said, “Total victory, Mom: it couldn’t be better.” Windsor said, “I wanna go to Stonewall right now!” Then she called a friend and said, “Please get married right away!”
Now we can't wait to read what the genius Levy makes of the day, the decision, and everything else.
