As expected, Nebraska Attorney General Doug Peterson has filed a request with the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals for a stay on the ruling from U.S. District Judge Joseph Bataillon which struck down the state’s ban on same-sex marriage.
Judge Bataillon issued his ruling on Monday saying the law is unconstitutional. Tuesday saw Peterson ask the 8th for a stay on that ruling.
Bataillon has placed a stay on the ruling which would expire on March 9th.
Peterson would like the issue put on hold until the U.S. Supreme Court rules on marriage equality this summer.
