California Gay Marriage on Hold as Case Is Appealed
A U.S. appeals court panel on Monday ruled that same-sex
couples could not marry in California while the court
considers the constitutionality of the state's gay marriage
ban, according to wire reports.
But the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals panel set a relatively
aggressive schedule for hearing the case, ordering lawyers to
produce a series of briefs between Sept. 17 and Nov. 1.
The Monday decision by the appellate panel reverses a ruling
last week by U.S. District Court Chief Judge Vaughn Walker,
who had said marriages could resume while higher courts
considered the matter.
