Fox News via AP: A Ugandan court is expected to rule Friday on a petition by activists who say the East African country's new anti-gay measure was passed during a parliamentary session that lacked quorum. If the panel of judges on Uganda's Constitutional Court agrees, the whole law could be jettisoned. If no, then the judges will continue to hear the activists' argument that the law is unconstitutional. The anti-gay measure provides for jail terms of up to life for those convicted of engaging in gay sex.
