    until after the appeal. This is something that the foes of the Prop 8 want. We want the apellet court to rule before the SC gets involved.

    •  Is it? (3+ / 0-)

      My understanding was the stay was only a certainty until tomorrow, allowing the two sides to make the case for whether it should be stayed following appeals or implemented immediately.

      If this is true, and if the pro-Prop 8 team maintains the standards they set during the trial, I expect the stay will be lifted asap. Among other things they seem to have brought a spoon to a tank battle.

        keep this out of the SC until all the facts are set in stone. Remember that the SC overturned the broadcasting of this trial. You don't want to give them another chance to weigh in that might influence the 9th Circuit decision.
