Gay marriage issue not on Supreme Court's order list again
WASHINGTON (KABC) -- The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday issued its order list, and the topic of same-sex marriage in California was not on it.
The justices were expected to announce whether they will review Proposition 8, the state's ban on same-sex marriage. That means the court has put off, once again, the decision whether to hear the case.
If they decide not to hear it, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals' decision to overturn the same-sex marriage ban would stand, meaning there could soon be a wedding blitz in the state.
If justices do decide to hear the Prop 8 case, a ruling wouldn't come for months.
Gay marriage is legal, or will be soon, in nine states - Connecticut, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Vermont, Washington - and the District of Columbia.
