Courts - "Ky federal judge will decide by 4 p.m. today whether to grant a stay of his ruling requiring Kentucky to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states" [Updated]

The Louisville Courier Journal has the preliminary story.

See earlier ILB post here, from yesterday.

[Updated March 1st] The linked LCJ story has now been updated and now begins:

A federal judge Friday gave Kentucky officials 20 days to figure out how to implement his ruling that requires the state to recognize same-sex marriages legally performed elsewhere.

U.S. District Judge John G. Heyburn II said that while the delay extends “an unconstitutional policy,” it allows the state “proper time to administratively prepare for compliance.”

Via the Kentucky Divorce Law Journal, here is a link to Bourke v. Beshear, the Feb. 12th WD Ky opinion recognizing same sex marriages performed in other states.
