Ninth Circuit Court declines appeal

From Episcopal Café:
From Reuters:

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals cleared the way on Tuesday for the Supreme Court to consider California's gay marriage ban, declining an appeal to revisit the case.
Supporters of the 2008 ban, Proposition 8, have lost two rounds in federal court but have made clear they will appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court and hope for a favorable response from the conservative-leaning court.

The top U.S. court could agree to hear the matter in the session beginning in October, putting it on track to decide the case within a year. It could also decline to review Prop 8.

What can I say? I don't trust the Supremes to do the right thing, but I hope the nine surprise me.

I'm with Mimi. I don't trust the Court, and I haven't trusted it since 2000.

SCOTUS current membership could change at any time: OBAMA 2012!
