Everybody who claims that there will be a "No" from the Constitutional Court next week, hasn't paid attention. (And, yes, I know that's all of our media.)

Das Bundesverfassungsgericht The Federal Constitutional Court
Die Anträge sind darauf gerichtet, dem Bundespräsidenten bis zur Entscheidung über die jeweilige Hauptsache zu untersagen, die von Bundestag und Bundesrat am 29. Juni 2012 als Maßnahmen zur Bewältigung der Staatsschuldenkrise im Euro-Währungsgebiet beschlossenen Gesetze zu unterzeichnen und auszufertigen.The requests are directed to ban the President from signing the laws adopted by the Bundestag and the Bundesrat on the 29th of June 2012 as measures to tackle the sovereign debt crisis in the euro area until the decision on the particular main decision.

The court will either decide the law can be put in force or it will decide there must be a ruling in the matter (next year or so).  I find the former is more likely. The court will NOT decide on the constitutionality next week.
