9th Circuit Keeps Stay On Prop 8 Ruling: No Marriages Just Yet

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has granted ProtectMarriage.com’s emergency request for a stay in Judge Vaughn Walker’s Prop 8 ruling, which means the possibility of same-sex marriage resuming on Wednesday, when Walker ordered a temporary stay lifted, is dead. The Court did, however, place the case on its “expedited” list, and will (theoretically) more quickly decide whether to rule the defendant-intervenors have proper standing to appeal.
