Aug 16, 2010: Marriage Suspense Comes to a Head this Wednesday: This Week in Prop 8 for August 16, 2010
It was another nail-biter this week, with Judge Walker ruling at the last second (actually, slightly after the last second) that gay couples will have to wait another few days before they can get married. Possibly.
The hold on marriages is expected to last until Wednesday at 5pm, at which time it will evaporate -- unless the Prop 8 people can get the Ninth Circuit to step in. Can they do it? It's anyone's guess. There's some doubt as to whether the Proponents are even allowed to attempt to do so; and even if they are, there's no guarantee that it'll be granted. More suspense!
Meanwhile, the American Foundation for Equal Rights (the organization that sued to overturn Prop 8) stepped into the whole Target debate by asking that the company donate money in support of marriage equality. Target, you'll recall, earned some ire when it was discovered that they were bankrolling an anti-marriage candidate. No response from Target yet.
