BREAKING: Judge Walker Lifts Stay Against Gay MarriageThursday, August 12th, 2010
Judge Vaughn Walker has just released his ruling on the stay imposed on his decision to repeal Proposition 8. The stay indefinitely prevented same-sex couples from being able to marry during the process of appealing Judge Walker's decision.
Judge Walker announced today that he will be lifting the stay effective August 18th @ 5PM! That means that courts in California will once again have the power to marry same-sex couples, many of whom have already been lining up at City Halls all over the state in anticipation of today's announcement. While the stay has been lifted, same-sex marriages will not be able to resume until after August 18th.
