We already know how far they will get, as in nowhere.

This case has been dragging out for over TWO YEARS now, and the 9th circuit if FINALLY getting around to scheduling a hearing?

The 9th circuit is SO PAINFULLY SLOW, which is why the Prop 8 case took 4 years to resolve.

On the bright side of things, they are hearing the more recent Idaho case as well.

So maybe in another couple of years we'll get a ruling out of the 9th; probably long after the SCOTUS has already made the cases moot.

Sigh...

Which is going to be the last state in the union to protect the rights of gay people to get married?

I suspect it will be Mississippi.

Sums it up. This time, however, they will just have to punt. SCOTUS already made a decision regarding standing.
