9th Circuit Temporarily Stays Injunction That Allowed Same-Sex Marriage In Idaho

In Latta v. Otter, (9th Cir., May 15, 2014), the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals granted a temporary stay of a federal district court's order that struck down Idaho's statutory and constitutional same-sex marriage ban. (See prior posting.) The temporary stay will be in place while the 9th Circuit decides whether to grant state and local officials' emergency motion (full text) for a longer stay pending appeal. Idaho Statesman reports on the 9th Circuit's order.
