Today, the state of Kansas just requested an emergency stay on same-sex marriages in the state of Kansas pending the hearing of their appeal.
Kansas, being under the jurisdiction of the 10th Circuit Court, refers such requests to Justice Sonia Sotomayor. And she has given the state the requested stay but included the phrase “until further ordered.” So, upon further review she, or the entire Supreme Court, could revoke the stay.

Sotomayor also called for a response to Kansas’ request by 5PM tomorrow in her order today.
