Supreme Court Rejects Request to Halt Gay Marriages in Oregon

New York Times: “The Supreme Court on Wednesday rejected a request to halt same-sex marriages in Oregon. The court’s one-line order gave no reasons for declining to issue a stay.”

The request to the Supreme Court that the decision be stayed came from the National Organization for Marriage.

“In declining to grant its request for a stay, the justices may have harbored doubt about whether the group had suffered the sort of direct injury that would give it standing in the case, National Organization for Marriage v. Geiger.”
