A response to yesterday’s post about the California Supreme Court rejecting a request by attorneys fighting Prop. 8 to speed up its timeline for deciding a key legal question:

State Supreme Court spokeswoman Lynn Holton points out that although the court rejected the expedited timeline, “… the court in fact has already expedited the Prop. 8 case by setting a special briefing schedule and oral arguments in September. Although September may seem like a long way away for arguments, it’s actually earlier than the court would normally schedule them in a case accepted for review in February.”

I would add that by responding to the 9th Circuit within six weeks, the Supreme Court sent another signal it understands the importance of the case and its urgency.
