Idaho judge denies Idaho governor’s request to stay her decision to grant gays and lesbians the right to marry

An Idaho judge struck down the state’s constitutional ban on same-sex marriage May 13. The state’s governer, Butch Otter, asked for a stay May 14, which was promptly denied. Here’s the screenshot of that official decision, which can be translated into non-legalese as “suck it.” Same-sex marriage licenses will start being issued Friday, May 16. The governor’s request for a stay will go to the 9th circuit, as reported by Chris Geidner, legal editor, BuzzFeed.
