California has still not resolved the fierce legal battles raging over Prop-8, the extremely controversial gay marriage ban passed four years ago but San Francisco is bracing for the worst and asking the Supreme Court to give the city forewarning before issuing its mandate one way or the other. The courts, unfortunately, doubt that such is possible.

This Friday, the Supreme Court is expected to decide if they are going to consider an appeal of the legal challenge to California’s Proposition 8. To prepare for the impact of the decision, San Francisco has requested “24 hours advance notice” from the Court before issuing the mandate.

While it’s understandable San Francisco wants a bit of warning before throngs of people descend upon City Hall, it’s not clear if advance notice is possible.
