Experts say the U.S. Supreme Court may not take the Prop 8 case following Tuesday's federal appeals court ruling that same-sex marriage ban is unconstitutional. Legally, it may be too "narrowly written," explains the L.A. Times.

The Supreme Court may be able to "affirm without having to significantly expand on its existing jurisprudence and without having to rule on marriage for same-sex couples on a national scale," said Loyola law professor Douglas NeJaime.

The three panel 2-1 decision by U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to overturn the 2008 voter-approved ban could be the last word since the ruling was California specific.
