Gay Marriage in California on Hold Until December, at Least

Gay couples in California are being told to put their planned celebrations on ice, once again. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th circuit granted opponents of Judge Vaughn Walker’s decision overturning Prop 8′s gay marriage ban a stay on all same-sex marriages until at least December. That’s when supporters of Prop 8 will have a chance to appeal the case, but questions of whether they have any standing to do so remain unclear.

With California’s governor and the attorney general declining to appeal on their behalf, the nonprofit and religious groups supporting Prop 8 would have to prove sufficient injury as a result of the ban being overturned in order to initiate a successful appeal. Judge Walker, for one, expressed skepticism about that prospect in his ruling, but it’s up to the 9th circuit now to asses whether they are allowed to keep fighting the issue in the courts.
