COLORADO: Tenth Circuit Holds Marriage Equality Case Until SCOTUS Rules

The Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals today put Colorado’s marriage equality case on hold until the Supreme Court rules on the issue.

This appeal is abated pending further order of this court. The deadline for the appellant’s opening brief will be established when the abatement of this appeal is lifted. The parties shall notify this court within 10 days of a decision on the petitions for writ of certiorari pending before the Supreme Court of the United States in Kitchen v. Herbert, Supreme Court No. 14-124, and Bishop v. Smith, Supreme Court No. 14-136. It is further ordered that the parties shall file status reports 30 days from the date of this order if no decision on the pending writs has been issued by that time.
