The Supreme Court last week made way for gay marriage to kick off in Idaho, which lifted a temporary ban on a lower court opinion that indicate the restrictions of the state remains unconstitutional.
Early this week, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals tore down laws in Nevada and Idaho that banned gay marriage. Nevada didn’t want to appeal, but Idaho requested SC Justice Anthony Kennedy, to halt the ruling while the state tries to reverse it.
Kennedy temporarily kept the Idaho ruling while making consideration of legal arguments filed by gay couples and the state looking to marry.
Legal actions this week have expanded to other states where gay marriage should be recognized. The court of appeals in Atlanta, New Orleans, and Cincinnati are currently deciding on the constitution of the gay marriage restriction in their circuits.
Idaho may still ask the Supreme Court or a bigger 9th Circuit judges, to make a reconsideration on the decision made by the appeals court.
