Analysis of Judge Walker's decision on the stay, and what's next
Prop 8 Trial Tracker • Aug 12, 2010
Judge Walker decided to deny the motion to stay his decision overturning Prop 8. But at the same time he also issued a temporary stay until August 18th to allow the Ninth Circuit time to decide whether or not it wants to stay the case pending the appeal. This is not surprising, and it is done out of respect for the Ninth Circuit. Judge Walker is simply making the call that is his (that a stay should be denied) but giving the Ninth Circuit some breathing room to make the call on its own. If the Ninth Circuit does not issue a stay by August 18th, Judge Walker's decision will take effect and marriages may resume in California. Until then, however, we remain in a holding pattern.
