Thank you, Chris Geidner, for still being at work after we’ve all gone home. (I guess I’m at work for a minute, but I’m leaving again.)
Brilliant news! The 10th Circuit has said “Nuh uh!” to the state of Utah, meaning marriage equality is here to stay at least until the appeal is decided:
The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals denied the state of Utah’s request to stop same-sex couples’ marriages during the appeal of the judge’s ruling that started those marriages on Friday.
“Having considered the district court’s decision and the parties’ arguments concerning the stay factors, we conclude that a stay is not warranted,” Judges Jerome Holmes and Robert Bacharach wrote in an order signed by court clerk Elisabeth Shumaker for the court.
Merry Christmas from everyone!
