(CNN) - The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Friday that same-sex marriages can resume in California, a move that the Supreme Court paved the way for on Wednesday.
Three judges on the appeals court made it possible for local governments to issue marriage certificates for gay and lesbian couples with a few words: "The stay in the above matter is dissolved effective immediately."
"The stay in the above matter is dissolved effective immediately."
In CA, County Clerks have stacks of marriage license applications in storage from when SSM was legal once before. They should be able to issue them immediately. I expect many marriages in San Diego before the July 13 Pride Parade.
What a relief this must be for many couples in California! Too bad the SC didn't have the guts to gut DOMA 1ce & for all! For all the gay couples in this nation who still can't marry in their states, that is! Equality=the word of the Century!!
We are not there yet we as a peopl are working on it. When everything is really equal this country will be a much better place to be. You think we have an immigration problem, wait until we have complete equality. I may not live to see it but it is coming. CLINTON 2016
