Marriage News Watch – September 25, 2012

In what is easily the most anti-climactic possibility for an announcement regarding the Supreme Court and marriage equality, SCOTUS released it’s list of cases it will take up this year and the California Prop 8 case is not on the list.

However, that is not the end of the road for Prop 8 just yet.  There are still other variables in this equation.

From the American Foundation for Equal Rights:

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.
