Gay marriage stay was granted by 9th Circuit Court while the constitutionality of the state's gay marriage ban is bandied about. Brian Devine at Calitics notes: "[T]he panel that issued this Order (the motions panel) is not the same panel that will hear that case on the merits. The merits panel will be selected shortly before December 6th and we don't know the three judges who will be on the merits panel. But this is a very good sign that the appeal could be dismissed on the ground of standing alone." For now, this means no same sex weddings anytime soon -- until DecemberGod knows when. [Calitics]
