A quick note on today’s posting snafu

Earlier this afternoon, the EqualityOnTrial team was doing some work on the “back end” of the site, when a draft I had written last night was erroneously published. I had written up two different drafts last night for the news this morning, since we knew that there would either be a grant or a denial of a stay of same-sex marriages in Utah. When the news broke earlier, I was around to post the correct story, noting that Judge Shelby had denied the request to halt marriages. The post went up and we had several updates throughout the day.

At some point something happened on the “back end” of the site, and the other draft, saying that a stay was actually granted in the case, was published, though the district court had taken no such action. As things stand now, there is no stay of same-sex marriages in Utah. Judge Shelby’s order denying a stay has been appealed to the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals, and after the appeals court asked the plaintiffs to respond to the request by 5PM tonight, their opposition brief was filed. As of this writing, the Tenth Circuit has not taken any further action.

I just wanted to clarify that the earlier post was completely by accident and that there hasn’t been a change in the situation since my earlier report that Judge Shelby had denied the stay.

Apologies for the confusion, and thanks to those of you who alerted us to the error!

Happy holidays, everyone
