    Troubling? Almost every legal expert I’ve read who was asked about the chances of the case before the Supreme Court has answered in definitive terms—whether they believe Prop 8 will be certainly overturned or whether the Court will undoubtedly uphold Prop 8. So I take the quotes from experts with a grain of salt.

    In any case, we need to hope that the Court will overturn the case but we need to work as if it won’t.
