Supreme Court To Decide Fate of Prop 8 and DOMA Cases in Conference on November 20

The Supreme Court will conference the DOMA cases and federal challenge to Proposition 8 in a private meeting on November 20, AFER reports:

SupremesThe Justices will meet to discuss our case, along with several challenges to the so-called Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), at their private Conference scheduled for Tuesday, November 20.

The Court is expected to either:

Grant review of our Prop. 8 challenge, at which point AFER’s legal team, led by distinguished attorneys Ted Olson and David Boies, will submit written briefs and present oral arguments by April 2013. A final decision on Prop. 8 and marriage equality is expected by June 2013.

Deny review, making permanent the landmark federal appeals court ruling that found Prop. 8 UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Marriage equality will be restored in California.

The Court is expected to release an Order List with its decisions on cases it has granted or denied review from its November 20 Conference by Monday, November 26.

The Court has no obligation to set a timeline for making a decision on granting or denying review..
