DOMA or Prop 8 cases are not on the Supreme Court's List

The Supreme Court revealed their the first list of cases and guest what? DOMA nor Prop 8 was on the list.

Here a bit more from AFER’s Marriage Blog:
The Justices meet nearly every week to determine the cases they will take up. The next time we could hear something is Monday, October 1 at 9:30 a.m. EDT / 6:30 a.m. PDT, when the Court is expected to release a list of cases it is not hearing this Term.

Some have speculated that the Supreme Court may wait to consider our case until later this fall when the Justices will decide whether to grant review in several cases challenging the so-called Defense of Marriage Act.
If the Supreme Court decides to hear our case, AFER’s legal team led by distinguished co-counsel Ted Olson and David Boies will urge to Court to affirm the fundamental right of all Americans to equally enjoy the freedom to marry the person they love.

If the Supreme Court decides not to hear our case, the landmark February 2012 decision of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals that struck down Prop. 8 will be made permanent, and marriage equality will return to California.
more to come, folks

Not surprising with the conservative lean of the current Court. :(
