Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Asked to Lift Prop 8 Stay

Attorneys who brought the federal case against Proposition 8 asked the U.S. Court of Appeals for the ninth circuit to lift the court-imposed stay on marriage equality in California. A three-judge panel of the ninth circuit had imposed that stay last year without comment after U.S. district judge Vaughn Walker ruled the 2008 voter initiative unconstitutional. Gay couples are still unable to wed in California as a result.
