9th Circuit lifts stay, effective Wed. morning

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has just issued an order lifting the stay that blocked same-sex marriage from starting in Idaho - effective Wednesday morning. That's 9 a.m. Wednesday, the order says; so that would be 10 a.m. Boise time. 

The plaintiffs hadn't yet filed their reply to today's filings from Gov. Butch Otter and Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden. Deborah Ferguson, attorney for the plaintiffs, said, "I guess they kind of knew what we were going to say. So that's just fantastic."

You can see the 9th Circuit's order here.
