At issue is a procedural matter that is relatively technical and obscure, but the Court's ruling will significantly influence the next step our case takes.
There are several potential outcomes of the oral argument: The California Supreme Court could deal a blow to Proponents' ability to appeal the trial court's careful decision finding Proposition 8 unconstitutional.
Alternatively, the Court could rule in such a way that makes it more likely that the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit will consider the constitutionality of Proposition 8 on the merits. The Ninth Circuit's decision could then wind up before the Supreme Court of the United States.
