The Ninth Circuit Court Of Appeal Stayed Idaho Marriage Equality

Written by 


Unlike Arkansas, where the marriage equality ban was repealed but not stayed, it was unfortunately not the case in Idaho where the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has stayed the ruling while waiting to consider the appeal.

The Court of Appeals indeed said that "the district court’s May 13, 2014 order is temporarily stayed pending this court’s disposition of appellants’ emergency motions for a stay pending appeal."

One does not know the duration of this stay but it is practically sure that it will be necessary to wait until the decision of the Court of Appeals on the question of the equal marriage. Currently, one does not know yet the date of the beginning of hearings.
