    After all, if they accept an appeal from the 9th Circuit's merit ruling and then vacate it on the basis that the 9th Circuit didn't have standing to hear the appeal, they have effectively affirmed and made irreversible Judge Walker's ruling because if the 9th can't hear the merit appeals, neither can they and they can't, barring a seismic shift in their own jurisprudence, reverse or vacate Walker's ruling. The conservatives (Scalia, Roberts, Thomas and Alito) wouldn't want that, so they will apply the Homosexual Exception™, visible in the Constitution only with Antonin Scalia's Cracker Jacks box Genuine Intent of the Founders™ decoder ring, to accept standing and attempt to reverse equality. The key will be whether Kennedy will go along with them if it comes down to the merits.
