No Sign Yet That Supreme Court Will Take On Gay Marriage

Still a slim chance for news on Monday


WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court took no action Friday on the closely watched cases involving the Defense of Marriage Act or California's Proposition 8.

After a day in which the court was scheduled to consider 10 different petitions addressing same-sex couples' relationship claims, an order posted on the Supreme Court's website about 3:30 p.m. added two new cases to the court's docket — but made no reference to any of the cases challenging DOMA or the challenge to Proposition 8 or an Arizona law rescinding domestic partner benefits for state employees.
