Supreme Court To Decide Nov. 20 If It will Hear Cases On DOMA And Prop 8
SCOTUS will decide November 20 whether it will take on the Defense of Marriage Act and California’s Proposition 8.
The justices are expected to review the possible cases before them and vote on which, if any, of the cases to hear this term, which began earlier this month. Four justices have to agree to hear a case in order for the court to take it.
The court is expected to announce the outcome of that conference, whether it is taking any cases and which requests, called petitions for a writ of certiorari, by Nov. 26.
