Bypassing the Supreme Court for the moment, supporters of California Prop 8 are appealing a ruling that went against them to the full Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. The decision gives two opportunities, instead of one, to see the Feb. 7 decision reversed. In that ruling, a three-judge panel for the Ninth Circuit struck down Prop 8, although it said its ruling was “narrow” and applied only to California and not to other states. If the Supreme Court had refused to hear the case, it would have been the end of the legal road.
