A well-known attorney due to ask the U.S. Supreme Court this month to strike down a California law banning same-sex marriage says the high court may very well present a united front in favor of gay and lesbian rights.

In a wide-ranging interview this week with the USA TODAY Editorial Board, attorney David Boies said he believes that the court's ruling, expected in June, "will not be a 5-4 decision. I don't know whether it's going to be 6-3, it's going to be 7-2," he said. "I don't know where it's going to come out, but I don't think this is going to be a 5-4 decision."
