Courts - SCOTUSblog: "Rapid action on same-sex marriage urged"
Lyle Denniston of SCOTUSblog has a much-updated post on cases in Circuit Courts that are likely to be eligible for review by the SCOTUS, should it so choose. A quote:
State officials in Virginia urged the Supreme Court on Monday to put on hold a federal appeals court decision striking down the state’s ban on same-sex marriage, but they also asked the Justices to move to decide that constitutional issue “as quickly as possible.” Lawyers for two groups of same-sex couples in Virginia opposed delay, but they also asked the Court — if it does order a postponement of that lower court decision — to move ahead swiftly to rule on the core question.
