It seems as though the Republicans are either throwing in the towel or expect a ruling in their favor.......I think SCOTUS will probably look at the request, but not sure they will hear arguments just yet.

Interesting strategy though.

I think SCOTUS will decline to hear an appeal by the GOP, but will only consider it once it's appealed thru the federal courts.

If SCOTUS hears an appeal from the GOP on DOMA, then no matter what they decide, the decsions will appear to be political.

They should decline to hear the GOP apeal of DOMA and treat the case just like other cases.

The SC should stay with US Constitutional Issues and stay out of Baseball. And, just in time, Birth Documents, Gun Runner Operation Documents are being hidden from a cowed media.
Broadcast is working to bury itself.
