USA, Utah: Request to Halt Same Sex Weddings to the Supreme Court Today?

Written by scott on December 30th, 2013

Utah Attorney General Sean ReyesIt looks like Utah’s new Attorney General will likely petition the US Supreme Court to step in and halt the weddings of gay and lesbian couples in the state today.

Keen News Service reports:

Utah’s new attorney general will be sworn in today and has indicated he hopes to send a request to the U.S. Supreme Court today seeking a stay on a federal district court ruling that has allowed same-sex couples to obtain marriage licenses there since December 20. As the justice designated to handle Tenth Circuit affairs, Justice Sonia Sotomayor will have the first opportunity to respond to Utah’s request, but many court observers expect she will ask the full court to weigh in.

What do you think the odds are that the Court will step in? And what does it mean if they don’t?
