Utah Gay Marriages Continue As District Court Denies Request For Stay

The federal judge who ruled Friday that Utah's ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional has denied the state's request for a stay on his decision. Marriages will continue in the state until a higher court issues a stay. Now that the state has officially lost at the District Court level it is expected to ask the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to issue a stay. The 10th Circuit has denied the state's request twice before (but those denials were primarily procedural in nature, since the state was asking out of order.)
