FOF--Stay-whaaaaat?

My latest @FeastOfFun:
So gays are getting married in California tomorrow right?

Not so fast, says the 9th Circuit Court.

Judge Walker’s decision from his Northern California district Federal Court initially had no sort of limit blocking its immediate effect. Stories of savvy and well-prepared lesbian couples sliding a quick wedding in under the wire wafted over from California–though none were confirmed to my knowledge. However, Judge Walker quickly implemented a temporary stay on his August 4th decision within hours–a rule that prevents a Judge’s decision from going into effect right away. He asked for arguments from both sides about whether or not to lift the stay.

Prop 8 supporters wanted a stay to preserve the status quo and prevent any more same-sex couples from marrying. The Plaintiffs argued against it, saying the ruling should take immediate effect and there would be no harm done to the defendants if it did go into immediate effect...

Chris Geidner: In Iowa, judges are ousted.

Via Chris Geidner's Poliglot blog at Metro Weekly:

"

In Iowa, which declared Iowa's marriage ban unconstitutional under the state's constitution in 2009, the National Organization for Marriage got one of its first electoral victories this year. The judicial retention elections appear to have resulted in the replacement of all three justices up for a vote this year.

Here, as of 3:35 a.m. and with 1767 out of 1774 precincts reporting, are the Iowa Secretary of State's election results:

Supreme Court Justice David L. Baker
Yes 443437 45.75%
No 525865 54.25%

Supreme Court Justice Michael J. Streit
Yes 442459 45.6%
No 527921 54.4%

Supreme Court Chief Justice Marsha Ternus
Yes 437118 44.99%
No 534486 55.01%

The court was unanimous in its 2009 ruling that Iowa's constitution required marriage equality."

Can we trust Rasmussen anymore?
