No Action From SCOTUS On Same-Sex Marriage

The Supreme Court considered the various same-sex marriage cases at it’s Friday conference but, so far, there’s no word on whether or not they’ll case the cases:

The Supreme Court on Monday released additional orders from its Friday Conference, but the list did not include any action on the ten cases dealing with the same-sex marriage issue.  It now appears that those cases will be rescheduled for the Conference this Friday morning.  An announcement could come after that session or on the following Monday.

Since taking any of these cases for appeal would transform this term into one of the most consequential in recent history, it’s likely the Court is taking its time here.  Next Friday’s conference is the last one before the Court takes its winter break, though, so if we don’t get some action this week then it will be sometime next year before we learn whether or not the Court will take on any of these cases.

    I get the feeling it is not whether they will take a case, but which one (or 2).

    @OzarkHillbilly:

    They’ll likely take Perry and consolidate the DOMA cases, IMO.
