10th Circuit Refuses To Stop Utah Marriage Equality!

Well, well! The other shoe has dropped and now (for the 3rd time!) the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has denied Utah's request for a stay of last Friday's order declaring the Beehive's Amendment 3 banning same-sex marriage illegal.

This means that same-sex marriages will be allowed to occur while the appeal is considered by the 10th Circuit, which could take 12-18 months. It is likely that Utah will appeal the request for a stay to Justice Sona Sotomayor  who would likely forward the matter to the full Supreme Court.
