Your first big update.

@SCOTUSblog 2m
Breaking: 1st update- #prop8 unlikely to be upheld; either struck down or #scotus won’t decide case. More in 30 mins.

Feel free to argue about the merits of both sides. I think I'll likely just be posting updates I see.

Breaking: key vote Kennedy VERY uncomfortable striking down #prop8. Suggests dismissing case. Would leave in place 9th Cir pro-#ssm ruling.

Welp.

@SCOTUSblog 4m
Arguments done. #scotus won’t uphold or strike down #prop8 bc Kennedy thinks it is too soon to rule on #ssm. #prop8 will stay invalidated.

Lots of reluctance to issue a broad ruling. Sotomayor asking for a way to limit just to California. Kennedy says "uncharted waters."

It may not be the worst thing.

If the 9th circuit ruling survives, which it appears it would (depends on how the court disposes of this), a good chunk of the west coast answers to that ruling.

Anybody in that part of the country, and the 9th circuit covers an enormous area, would have good solid grounds to bring a challenge to any state law banning same-sex-marriage in any state within the 9th

It'll give SCOTUS more time to sort this stuff out while the lower court deals with the clusterfuck.
