After reading the transcript from yesterday’s oral arguments, the issue of standing, or having sustained a significant enough injury as a result of the decision below to bring the case, is central. You can’t read too much into oral arguments, but it seems like the Justices may rule that the proponents of Prop 8 lack standing (meaning they also lacked standing when they appealed to the Ninth Circuit). In that case, the District Court ruling rejecting Proposition 8 would take effect.
