No Supreme Court action on DOMA, gay marriage

The Supreme Court on Monday once more put off to another day a decision on whether to hear gay marriage cases.

The court's nine justices had met privately Friday to discuss potential cases, potentially including challenges to the federal Defense of Marriage Act and a lower court's ruling that struck down California's Proposition 8. But in orders issued at 9:30 a.m., none of the gay marriage cases were listed.
