(Washington D.C., October 8, 2014)—This afternoon the U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy issued an order clarifying that there is no stay on the Ninth Circuit’s decision as it applies to Nevada. Jon W. Davidson, Legal Director and Eden/Rushing Chair at Lambda Legal issued the following statement:

“As we had hoped, the Supreme Court has clarified this morning’s order and explained that there is no stay of the Ninth Circuit’s mandate as to Nevada. The temporary stay applies only to Idaho. We are delighted and hope officials in Nevada will continue to move quickly, as they had been, to start issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.”
