Let the Wedding Bells Ring: Same Sex Marriage Stay Denied. Gay Marriages To Resume in California on Wed., August 18, 2010

The evidence presented at trial and the position of the representatives of the State of California show that an injunction against enforcement of Proposition 8 is in the public’s interest. Accordingly, the court concludes that the public interest counsels against entry of the stay proponents seek.

None of the factors the court weighs in considering a motion to stay favors granting a stay.

Accordingly, proponents’ motion for a stay is DENIED. Doc #705.
The clerk is DIRECTED to enter judgment forthwith.

That judgment shall be STAYED until August 18, 2010 at 5PMPDT at which time defendants and all persons under their control or supervision shall cease to apply or enforce Proposition 8.


VAUGHN R WALKER United States District Chief Judge
