Judge Vaugh Walker’s ruling that spun heads on August 4th and allowed for same-sex marriage has been put on stay by the Ninth Circuit. The Ninth Circuit which is made up of three judges is set to be hearing arguments the first week of December in San Francisco. During which, both sides of the issue will be addressed.

Prop 8

Prop 8

Normally, only the party being “hurt” by the rulling is granted the right of standing or the right to appeal. This situation is playing out a bit ordinarilly since Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Attorney General Jerry Brown were against the stay and the appeal of Judge Vaughn Walkers Rulling. A case will have to be made to the Ninth Circuit explaing why those who are not affected by Judge Walkers order has the right to appeal.

And so the wait for equality in marrige continues…
