Ind. Decisions - The oral argument in the Wis./Ind. SSM appeal has been scheduled

I'm told the oral argument before a three-judge panel now has been set for August 26th. Hope to post the order shortly.

[More]

Docket Text:
Argument set for Tuesday, August 26, 2014, at 9:30 a.m. in the Main Courtroom, Room 2721. Each side limited to 20 minutes. [100] [6593117] [14-2386, 14-2387, 14-2388] (RS)

These appear to be only the Indiana cases.

[More] Actually, both the Indiana and Wisconsin order say 9:30 in room 2721 on August 26th. [h/t @EQCF]

[Still more] I'm told this means Wis. and Ind. litigants have to share their argument time, and there may be a a tug of war over who's going to make the argument for each side, given the difficulty of splitting 20 minutes between more than a single counsel.

And as the panel likely will have questions, 20 minutes in not much ...

There will be three sets of Indiana plaintiffs, plus the Wisconsin plaintiffs, represented on one side, and the Indiana and Wisconsin attorneys general on the other.
