Circuit Court Rejects Utah’s Plea to End Gay Marriages

The 10th Circuit has denied the State of Utah’s request to halt gay marriages in the state pending its appeal of a lower court ruling before the appellate court.

The next and final hope for Utah – for halting more marriages in advance of the 10th Circuit’s actual ruling on the case – is an appeal directly to the Supreme Court, which would be fielded by Justice Sotomayor.
