The Supreme Court has just released its list of cases they will take up this session and surprise, surprise (to no one) was that the federal Prop 8 case and not one of the DOMA cases made the list and has been passed up for now while SCOTUS confrences to take up the cases.
The Justices meet nearly every week to determine the cases they will take up. The next time we could hear something is Monday, October 1 at 9:30 a.m. EDT / 6:30 a.m. PDT, when the Court is expected to release a list of cases it is not hearing this Term.
Some have speculated that the Supreme Court may wait to consider our case until later this fall when the Justices will decide whether to grant review in several cases challenging the so-called Defense of Marriage Act.
You just have to love AFER’s reference to the “so-called” Defense of Marriage Act
My call is that the cowardly Supreme Court will wait until AFTER the elections in fear of any backlash if they hear the cases at all. And if they do the result of the election will affect what they decide or choose to do.
Remember if they decline to hear the cases. We WIN and the previous rulings stand.
