This Note analyzes the decision of the United States Supreme Court in Romer v. Evans and predicts its practical impact. First, the majority and dissenting opinions and the major arguments on both sides are summarized. Second, these arguments are analyzed as applied to homosexual groups as well as other groups that potentially may be affected. Finally, this Note predicts the impact that Romer will have on future attempts to “trump” state or local antidiscrimination laws, as applied to homosexuals or other identifiable groups.
