Supreme Court Set to Consider Whether to Take Prop 8, DOMA Cases

The Supreme Court will meet in private on Nov. 20 to consider whether to take Hollingsworth vs. Perry, the federal challenge to Prop 8.

The American Foundation for Equal Rights, the org of political and entertainment activists, said that the justices would also consider several cases challenging the Defense of Marriage Act.

The high court is expected to release a list of cases it will consider on Nov. 26. If it takes the Prop 8 case, the oral arguments are expected to be held in the spring. If it refuses to take the case, it means that same-sex marriages can begin again in California. That’s because the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Prop 8 is unconstutional.
