    Some sources say the Prop H8ers are appealing to have a stay in order to prevent California gays from getting married during the interim before they appeal, some say that Judge Walker hasn't put an immediate hold and that it must be sought for from a higher court, and others say he definitely did put it on stay, meaning no same-sex marriage.

    CNN reported moments after the announcement that Walker did, in fact, put a stay on his ruling until it works its way through the appeals court.

    I agree with this. CNN pointed out that neither side wants people in legal limbo while this is all sorted through. It would be absolutely horrible to have this ruling be over turned, and have tens of thousands of marriage licenses to void.

    And now with this judge's ruling (though it will get to the Supreme Court next year), Maine should be next to overturn the ban there.

    There should be no stay.

    Possession is 99% of the law.

    I heard that he only put a stay on his ruling until August 6th, at which point there will be a hearing on a full stay.

    This ^

    Also, if the stay becomes permanent, the Appellate will expedite the case, which will shoot it to the US Supreme Court.

    I dont know why he would put a stay on his ruling, since it was so strong. Unless he thinks the flurry of marriages in the interim would be too weird if the case lost in the USSC.
