Supreme Court Lifts Stay On Same-Sex Marriages In Kansas

The U.S. Supreme Court issued an order (full text) late afternoon today vacating the temporary stay initially granted by Justice Sotomayor in Moser v. Marie.  Justices Thomas and Scalia dissented indicating they would grant the stay.  The Court's action gives effect to a preliminary injunction against Kansas' same-sex marriage ban that was issued by a federal district court last week. (See prior posting.) Washington Post reports on the Supreme Court's action. [Thanks to Tom Rutledge for the lead.]
