    I’m pragmatic enough to think several of the 10th Circuit judges took some vacation time for Christmas so they decided to wait. Of course, if they thought it was an “emergency,” as Utah officials want them to think, they’d find a way to issue a stay. I, too, hope they refuse the stay.

    A clergy colleague friend of mine was married to his long-time partner in Ogden on Monday, then stayed at the courthouse to officiate for other couples.

    They did refuse the stay.

    This bodes well for permanence.

    I realize that we can’t take this as an indicator of the 10th Circuit’s final decision, but one of the reasons for refusing a stay is that the appellant is not likely to prevail at trial.

    I would say there is some likelihood of winning the appeal, as SCOTUS has not decided there is a right to same sex marriage as of now, and “Baker” still stands as precedent. So I expect an eventual stay.
