Dacus: SCOTUS will hear Prop. 8 case

A California legal group is "somewhat confident" the nation's highest court will accept The Golden State's marriage case and reverse lower court rulings.

District Judge James Ware, the trial judge in the case, ordered that it be closed -- a decision that will go into effect when the U.S. Supreme Court determines the fate of the case. Proponents of Proposition 8 asked the high court to consider the case after the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a ruling that called the measure unconstitutional.

Dacus, Brad (PJI)Brad Dacus, president of the Pacific Justice Institute, believes it is likely that the Supreme Court will uphold Proposition 8.

"Make no mistake -- the U.S. Supreme Court will likely take up this case and we believe will reverse the lower courts, reverse the Ninth Circuit and uphold the constitutionality of Proposition 8, defining marriage as between one man and one woman," he declares. "We are somewhat confident that there are enough members of the U.S. Supreme Court to respect the Constitution, to respect the limitations of the federal government that acknowledge the ability for the people in a state to define marriage as between one man and one woman."

The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to take the case in October when it returns from recess.
