The American Foundation for Equal Rights has announced that the U.S. Supreme Court will consider reviewing its constitutional challenge to California's Prop 8 on Nov. 20.
According to AFER:
The Justices will meet to discuss our case, along with several challenges to the so-called Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), at their private Conference scheduled for Tuesday, November 20.
• Grant review of our Prop. 8 challenge, at which point AFER’s legal team, led by distinguished attorneys Ted Olson and David Boies, will submit written briefs and present oral arguments by April 2013. A final decision on Prop. 8 and marriage equality is expected by June 2013.
• Deny review, making permanent the landmark federal appeals court ruling that found Prop. 8 unconstitutional. Marriage equality will be restored in California.
