Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker may have overturned California's same-sex marriage ban Wednesday but he also granted a a stay request.
Walker wrote that he wants to decide whether his order should be suspended while the Prop 8 supporters pursue their appeal in the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
The judge ordered both sides to submit written arguments by Aug. 6 on the issue. Couples reportedly tried to get their marriage licenses in San Francisco Wednesday but were turned away. The ruling is temporary but indefinite.
