First Monday: "Wait ... did they really do that?!" Edition

Today's the official start of the 2014 USSC term and there are some improvements on its website. It wasted no time schooling the 9CA on a habeas claim via a per curiam. But, the truly surprising thing is that they denied cert. in all the SSM cases. RBG hinted at this, but the confusing thing is the 6CA didn't rule yet. Why not just continue the cases until then?! They very well might eventually rule on it, but it is really unlikely they will uphold the bans now. And, realistically, this is a big signal to lower courts (such as the 6CA) of this very fact.
