SHOCKER: Supreme Court Takes NO ACTION Today on Prop 8 or Same Sex Marriage Cases

Now it’s officially become a waiting game.

The Supreme Court announced no action today on the DOMA and Prop 8 cases before it. Next word could happen this Friday.


Writes AFER:

We may hear soon that our case has been redistributed for consideration at the Court’s next Conference, scheduled for this Friday, December 7. If this happens, we could get word from the Court that day, or the morning of Monday, December 10. It is important to remember that that the Supreme Court often takes more than one Conference to consider whether to grant review in certain cases.

Here at AFER, we remain optimistic that the Justices will soon act in our case, either agreeing to hear our arguments or allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry in California, but we must also be prepared to stay vigilant into the New Year for a final determination from the Court.

Now are the delays good for us or bad?  Thats a question that is on everybody’s mind.  But no one seems to be able to answer.

All I know is that the suspense is KILLING ME.
