    As I predicted in an earlier thread, the supporters of Prop. 8aren’t going to take the 9th circuit ruling lifting the stay order lying down. They’ve filed an appeal with the SCOTUS to reinstate the stay order and halt the issuing of marriage licenses in California. They’re going to do anything to stall,hoping that something will turn up. The consensus amongst the legal beagles is that their chances are slim and none and slim is on the bus headed out of town.
