Do emergency stays and expedited appeals normally take four months?
It would be awesome because Pat Buchanan's head would explode as he tried to rationalize how the country clearly went in the Christervative direction but that a disaster was inflicted on us by his God anyways.
It's pretty obvious the appellants don't have standing, yet the court extended the stay.
Best to grant them standing and then rule against them on the merits.
The subtlety you're missing is that, with the possible exception of ProtectMarriage.com, the intervenors are arguing for article 3 standing on the grounds of, inter alia, (you being big on the Latin and all) injury in fact.
You took issue with my statement that they pretty obviously don't have standing.
Or did you mean your non-sequitur (this Latin business is fun) about collateral estoppel? I was ignoring that.
If Judge Walker's ruling ordering an injunction with immediate effect against Prop 8 were allowed to go ahead, why would this be bad for same sex marriage in California and elsewhere? Go nuts on the Latin if it helps (though I doubt it will).
