If you are interested and/or curious about the latest developments on the LGBT civil rights movement and you are waiting to hear the Supreme Court ruling this June on DOMA and Prop 8 cases, then you would certainly like The Oath: The Obama White House and the Supreme Court by Jeffrey Toobin.

Through a recompilation of interviews, anecdotes and facts, Jeffrey Toobin describes the interactions among justices and provides the audience with a good perspective on the justices human side. He describes the ways in which their past personal and professional experiences contribute to their ideologies and greatly influence their decisions on current issues. As you read it becomes clearer why and who will vote in favor, who will vote against and who could be the unpredictable one this June.

This book is a great insight to the behind the scenes at the justices and their interactions with the White House.

If you are interested on the possible outcomes of the Supreme Court ruling on this issue the American Foundation for Equal Rights blog explains it really well.
