Court: Marriage Ruling Stands

U.S. Magistrate Judge Candy Dale has denied Gov. Butch Otter’s motion for an emergency hearing on his bid to stay her decision overturning Idaho’s ban on same-sex marriage – and she’s also denied the motion for a stay. “Having fully reviewed the record, the Court finds that the facts and legal arguments are adequate presented in the Governor’s motion, the briefs on the merits, and the record,” she wrote in an order issued just now. “Accordingly, in the interest of avoiding delay, and because the Court conclusively finds that the decisional process would not be significantly aided by oral argument, this matter will be decided on the record without oral argument”/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise.
