Supreme Court Announcement of Prop 8, pushed until Nov 30th…

The U.S. Supreme Court has decided to push the date of whether they will hear the Prop 8 case or not, until Nov 30th.  No reason was given for the change from it’s  original date of Nov 20th. 

Hollingsworth v. Perry has been submitted to the justices along with a handful of other cases challenging the constitutionality of the so-called Defense of Marriage Act and other legal hindrances to marriage equality. A federal district court that found Proposition 8 in 2010, and the U.S. court of appeals for the ninth circuit upheld that decision in February 2012. In July the case was submitted to the Supreme Court.

If the court denies the hear the case than the lower courts ruling is permanent and gay marriage will resume in Cali…It has been four years since gay marriage was overturned in California…Disgusting…

    they keep postponing it because their, um, oh, boxers are nut uncomfortable and bunching in an uproar — indeed, the courts, and the big one, since the beginning of all gay court cases, have done everything they can not to hear cases. Still, either way, it’s actually a good sign — for either they will uphold the lower courts by not hearing the appeal, or they are carefully thinking about how they can ensure a majority to uphold the law in a way that is either specific to CA, or so vastly sweeping that it will stop the Supremes ever having to hear another case on the issue. For they know, if they deal only with one or two states, we’ll just bring back the rest of the states.
