Ninth Circuit Court Asks for Plaintiffs Response to Stay Motion

Just in, the 9th Circuit court has issued an order on the Stay request by the Defendants in the Prop 8 Case.

From the Courage Campaign...

The Ninth Circuit just issued an Order stating that the Plaintiffs’ response to the Motion to Stay is due by 11:00 p.m. tonight. The Prop 8 supporters’ reply, not to exceed 15 pages, is due by 9:00 a.m. on Monday, August 16, 2010. This suggests that the Ninth Circuit is preparing to rule on the Motion to Stay before Judge Walker’s temporary stay expires on August 18th at 5:00 p.m.
It’s surprising that the Court only gave the Plaintiffs about 9 hours to file their brief, and gave the Appellants until Monday to Reply.  But I wouldn’t read too much into this.  They know that everyone anticipated the Motion and that everyone’s briefs are essentially written already.
