Today in 2003: The U.S. Supreme Court finds a Texas “anti-sodomy” law unconstitutional, overruling, and apologizing for, the 1986 Bowers v. Hardwick decision.
The 6 to 3 decision in Lawrence versus Texas said that citizens have the “right to liberty under the Due Process Clause gives them the full right to engage in private conduct without government intervention.”
