Is a Surprise Coming at the Supreme Court?

Rick Hasen: "This term too could end with surprises. One possibility is that a court majority will decide that it never should have taken California's Proposition 8 same sex-marriage case to begin with (because those supporting the law did not have legal standing to defend it), and the case could be dismissed over the strenuous objections of other justices."

"We just don't know yet. There are 11 cases remaining for the court to decide, and it is likely that all 11 will be decided by the end of next week. But there are no guarantees. The court has gone into July to issue opinions when necessary."
