Supreme Court to Hear Prop 8 and DOMA Arguments

Supreme Court to Hear Prop 8 and DOMA Arguments

Read the article on the Scotus Blog above link, probably the horse's mouth in this case.  Sounds very legal and iffy.  Sounds a little like the Supremes are trying to wiggle their way out of making any real Constitutional decisions.

And here's a link to the Prop8Tracker blog.

Any other insights?

I wouldn't try to read too much into the tea leaves at this point. I posted links to several other commentaries over on my blog, but all anyone really, truly knows for sure is that at least 4 justices thought these two cases were worth looking at - either pro or con. That's all anybody can know until the Court rules.

But I'd bet that it's going to be a mainly favorable ruling for us. The country has come a long way in the last ten years, and the old adage is true that "the Supreme Court follows the election returns."

I'm cautiously optimistic.

I think it is significant that the Court will answer questions as to the standing of the proponents of Prop. 8 and DOMA -- questions that weren't even asked of them.
