Sigh. Looks like this is going for the long haul.
The Courage Campaign has a good analysis and commentary about why this is really good news in many ways.
In a brief order, a three-judge panel agreed to an expedited review of U.S. District Judge Vaughn R. Walker's Aug. 4 ruling that overturned Proposition 8 as a violation of the federal Constitution.
The panel agreed to hold a hearing on the case during the week of Dec. 6 and ordered both sides to present arguments on whether the campaign for Proposition 8 has legal authority to appeal Walker's order.
Update: California Attorney General (and candidate for Governor) Jerry Brown won't appeal court's ruling.
