Silence from SCOTUS on Gay Marriage Today

Court doesn't indicate whether it will review Proposition 8 ruling as yet

|

The US Supreme Court this morning did not include the Prop 8 case in the list of cases it chose not to review.

The case, Americans for Equal Rights (AFER) challenge to Proposition 8, also known as the Perry V Brown case, holds tremendous interest in the LGBT community, for if the High Court does not hear it, same-sex marriages would once again begin.

The weddings won't begin just yet, as the US Supreme Court did not deny the Prop 8 case review today.

The High Court's first opportunity to deny review of the case came and went this morning.

Prop 8 has been ruled unconstitutional. Twice. First by the US District Court in Northern California and then by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

The Proponents of Prop 8 then asked the US Supreme Court to hear the case.
