SCOTUS stays Utah marriage equality

In what is  almost an unprecedented and surprising move, the US Supreme Court has issued a stay of Utah's same-sex marriage pending the outcome of an appeals court ruling now pending in the United States Tenth District. This will not affect marriages already consummated but will halt additional marriages until the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals rules on the issue.

While the appeals court has expedited the briefs, it is unlikely that they will rule until the summer.
