On the eve of a U.S. Supreme Court ruling on marriage cases brought by the ACLU and others, hosts Jim Braude and Margery Eagan interviewed our executive director Carol Rose on WGBH's Boston Public Radio.

Carol said a ruling against marriage equality would be like 1857's infamous Dred Scott decision. But she said, "I'm really hopeful that we'll have a victory."

Jim and Margery also asked Carol to explain the ACLU position on the Confederate flag, and to comment on this week's hint of of a possible new suspect in the 2011 Waltham triple murder that preceded the Boston Marathon bombing. Carol said:

"This whole thing just raises a lot of questions and concerns.... When you don't have transparency and you don't have clarity from the government, [people] make up things that may be far worse."
