In a brief order, the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals has canceled oral arguments in challenges to same-sex marriage bans from Arkansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Missouri.
The appeals court will wait until after the US Supreme Court issues its decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, which was argued on Tuesday.
The court wasn’t asked to postpone the arguments: it decided to do so on its own.
The arguments had been set for May 12, and a decision by the Supreme Court in Obergefell is expected by late June.
