Prop 8 & DOMA Set for Nov 20 SCOTUS Conference
The Proposition 8 case has been redistributed to the Justices of the Supreme Court in preparation for conference on November 20. Should the justices choose not to hear the case, equal marriage would immediately go into effect in California. Otherwise, we can expect a decision over the summer.
Also conferenced for November 20 is Massachusetts v. United States Department of Health and Human Services, one of the DOMA cases.
The matter was previously conferenced on September 24. The Justices did not take action on the case at that time.
