  •  Gay marriage probably won't make it to SCOTUS (1+ / 0-)

    for a while. Right now Perry v. Schwarzenegger (the Prop 8 case where Ted Olson and David Boies are leading the fight) is held up because the CA supreme court has to figure out if the anti-gay groups have standing to defend Prop 8 (since Jerry Brown and Kamala Harris both refuse to do so). The CA Supreme Court will start hearing oral arguments in September, and then even if they say the anti-gay groups have standing, that means it goes back to the court of appeals. After the court of appeals rules, I believe it's back to the CA Supreme Court, and then onto SCOTUS. So I really don't see a ruling before the 2012 elections.
