No Idaho Marriage Equality Tomorrow

IdahoThe state will have to wait a little longer for Idaho marriage equality after the 9th circuit granted a temporary stay.

Edge Boston reports:

A federal appeals court has temporarily put plans for Idaho same-sex weddings on hold while it considers the state’s request for a longer stay. The state’s gay marriage ban was overturned Tuesday when U.S. District Judge Candy Dale said the law unconstitutionally denied gay and lesbian residents their fundamental right to marry. Dale said Idaho must begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples starting Friday morning. But the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday put the weddings on hold while it considers a request for a longer stay while the governor and attorney general appeal the case.

It’s sad that these couples will have to wait AGAIN, but ultimately we will win.
