Courts - "Supreme Court delays decision on taking up gay marriage cases"

Updating last week's ILB entries on the gay marriage cases being considered by the SCOTUS (most recent ILB entry here), David G. Savage of the LA Times reported Friday afternoon in a story that begins:

The Supreme Court took no action Friday on a series of pending appeals involving gay marriage, putting off until at least next week a decision on which cases to hear.

The justices met behind closed doors to debate cases involving the Defense of Marriage Act and California’s Proposition 8, the voter initiative that limits marriage to a man and a woman.

Here is Lyle Denniston's report at SCOTUSblog, explaining the intricacies.
