Nebraska: 8th Circuit Court Of Appeals Issues Stay On Same-Sex Marriage Ruling

Nebraska: 8th Circuit Court Of Appeals Issues Stay On Same-Sex Marriage Ruling

On March 2nd U.S. District Judge Joseph Bataillon ruled against Nebraska’s ban on same-sex marriage. With a one week stay in place, same-sex marriage was scheduled to begin in Nebraska Monday barring 8th Circuit action.

And now, the 8th Circuit Court steps in. From the ruling:

“Appellants’ Emergency Motion for Stay Pending Appeal has been considered by the court, and the motion is granted. The District Court’s Injunction Order of March 2, 2015 will be stayed pending the disposition of this appeal.

“It is further ordered that this case be set for oral argument in Omaha, Nebraska on May 12, 2015, together with the three other same-sex marriage cases now pending before the court.”

Those other three cases scheduled for May 12th are Missouri, Arkansas, and South Dakota.

Marriages had been due to commence in Nebraska on Monday morning.
