UPDATED — BREAKING: The stay is over – but, was extended until Aug. 18th

The stay has been lifted. Judge Walker has denied the motion to stay his Prop. 8 decision with this line: Joe.My.God confirms.


But, there’s an important UPDATE:

Here’s the Judge’s decision. The stay was lifted with this line:

Accordingly, proponents’ motion for a stay is DENIED.

So, it’s lifted, BUT,

“That judgment shall be STAYED until August 18, 2010 at 5PM PDT at which time defendants and all persons under their control or supervision shall cease to apply or enforce Proposition 8.”

Unless the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals intervenes, marriages will begin on August 18, 2010 at 5:00 PM.
