No action on same-sex marriage


Nothing has ruled out the possibility that some actions on same-sex marriage could be announced at that time ((Monday)), although there is no indication that that will occur.

Supreme Court Does Not Act on Gay-Marriage Cases

Wall Street Journal

The Supreme Court took no action on any of the 10 gay-marriage petitions before it Friday...

Supreme Court Takes No Action on Gay Marriage

ABC News

... the justices surprised court watchers when they took no action at all.

Gay Marriage Questions, Cases Weighed By Supreme Court, Decision Delayed

Huffington Post

There was no announcement about the court's plans on Friday. The next opportunity for word on gay marriage cases is Monday, although the justices also could put off a decision until their next private meeting in a week's time.

Report: Supreme Court takes no action today on LGBT cases

Prop 8 Trial Tracker

Today’s order list, just released, is here. No word on the ten gay rights petitions.
Glad we could clear that up for you.

Of course they might have decided something today. Like whether to flip a coin to decide on whether to consult the entrails of a vulture to determine if they should flip a coin on whether to grant Certiorari for Perry. We just don't know.

No one knows what to expect. Or whether to expect. Or even if any of the Justices are expecting (not likely, granted).

On Monday, all this could change. Or not. If you have some entrails, you'd best consult them.

Important Update

At this point, any prediction about where the same-sex marriage cases stand at the Court is subject to serious error. The Court does not explain inactions, so silence can mean many alternative possibilities.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
