Iowa Judge: Not So Fast

As mentioned several posts down, yesterday an Iowa judge struck down that state’s Defense of Marriage Act. Wasting no time, two Iowa men were married on their front lawn this morning. But at 11am, after 20 gay couples had filed for marriage licenses, the same judge issued a verbal stay of his order, pending the appeal of his decision to the Iowa Supreme Court. There’s no word on the legality of the one marriage performed or on the validity of the other licenses issued.
