An “Opinion” means the following – “A statement that is prepared by a judge or court announcing the decision after a case is tried; includes a summary of the facts, a recitation of the applicable law and how it relates to the facts, the rationale supporting the decision, and a judgment; and is usually presented in writing, though occasionally an oral opinion is rendered.”
SCOTUS has added an additional opinion session that will take place this Friday (they begin at 10am) – There is a public phone line where one is able to call to hear which opinions will be heard. You can only call after noon. Here’s the number: 202-479-3360
The Supreme Court has added a non-argument session for the announcement of opinions on Friday, June 26, 2015, at 10 a.m.

-Allison Cox, Board Member of The Greater Dayton LGBT Center
Thank you Dayton for making this year’s PRIDE #winningDIVERSITY such an amazing success. Without our sponsors, volunteers, entertainers, board of trustees and of course YOU, PRIDE wouldn’t have been possible!
If you answered ‘no’ to those questions, it’s time to get or renew your membership! The Center memberships are annual memberships that expire each December. There are many different memberships available – individual, household, senior, student, and even business memberships!
Why should you get a membership? What does it do?
Each and every membership supports the events and programs offered by the Greater Dayton LGBT Center to the community. The Center is a non-profit organization run entirely by volunteers. There are no paid staff or executive directors, which means that 100% of your membership fee goes to the community events and programming. The Greater Dayton LGBT Center is responsible for: Dayton’s Annual Pride Parade and Festival at Courthouse Square, Free Community Dinners, The Annual Women’s Valentine’s Day Dance, bi-monthly newsletter for the LGBT community, and many other special events. The Center also helps to sponsor events like the Dayton LGBT Film Festival and an annual PFLAG Scholarship for LGBT students. We recently co-sponsored Laverne Cox’s visit to Wright State University.
What do I get out of it?
Besides supporting our community, your membership also puts money back in your pocket! Together with some very special local businesses, we have put together a rewards program for paid members. When you get or renew your annual membership, you will receive a membership card. You can flash this card for discounts or benefits at businesses around Dayton who support our LGBT community. Currently, you can receive 10% off food at Salar on 5th Street, 10% off food at Flying Pizza, a free upgrade to a large popcorn when you purchase a small popcorn at The Neon Theater, free entry to MJ’s on Jefferson, and a $1 off your first drink at the Right Corner.
What are you waiting for?
