    Court halts Calif. gay marriages pending appeal

    By LISA LEFF, Associated Press Writer – 5 mins ago
    SAN FRANCISCO – A federal appeals court put same-sex weddings in California on hold indefinitely Monday while it considers the constitutionality of the state's gay marriage ban.
    The decision, issued by a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, trumps a lower court judge's order that would have allowed county clerks to begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples on Wednesday.
    Lawyers for the two gay couples that challenged the ban said Monday they would not appeal the panel's decision on the stay to the Supreme Court.
    In its two-page order granting the stay, the 9th Circuit agreed to expedite its consideration of the Proposition 8 case. The court plans to hear the case during the week of Dec. 6 after moving up deadlines for both sides to file their written arguments by Nov. 1.

    This is good to see!
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Yes...it is a very good sign for those of us on the side of love against hate. The ninth circuit is expediting the appeal process which, if you read the article, is a good indication that they are likely to side with those opposing prop 8.

    We all know this is likely to get to SCOTUS.

    Bring it on.

    As opposed to the freedoms guaranteed by our Constitution?

    The funny thing is....you guys didn't even read the article. This is actually a good sign for those who oppose prop 8. The Court expedited the process which is a good indication that they believe that a significant right is being infringed upon and are seeking the remedy the situation.

    I am not surprised of this move. I expect this to go all the way to the Supreme Court.

    Where is the freedom to force the people to change society for no good reason?

    there is nothing in the Constitution about gay marriage Disney. No matter how much you scream, the only way to claim its in there is to bastardize the law already written to include it when it never was even hinted to be in there when it was written.

    Actually I did. I enjoy seeing the rights of the voters enforced by the courts.

    No but the 1st Amendment guarantees freedom of association.
