Here’s what happened:

The Ninth Circuit recently heard challenges to same-sex marriage bans in Idaho and Nevada, who, for the purposes of convenience, had combined both of their challenges into a single case. In two different rulings, the federal appellate court struck down both of these states’ bans, allowing same-sex marriage in Idaho and Nevada, and issued a mandate on the ruling to immediately enforce the new law. In other words, the moment that the Ninth Circuit struck down the ban, gay and lesbian couples could get married immediately.

This did not make Idaho happy, so they filed a request to Justice Kennedy asking him to put a stop on same-sex marriage in Idaho, so that state officials could review their case before the Ninth Circuit. Kennedy allowed it, but in a total brain fart moment, issued an order that put a stop on weddings in both Idaho and Nevada, even though nobody in Nevada had asked for a review, either.[su_csky_ad]

    Sure it was just a typo. I believe it. If you can trust anyone it has to be someone on the far right.

      Kennedy often votes with the liberals, he’s no ideologue, but a sober judge.

        OK, maybe his brain is just fried from old age and he still thinks Regan is President and he owes him a favor for appointing him.

          Repeated exposure to Roberts, Alito, Scalia and Thomas has taken its toll!

    These SCOTUS law Clerks who write Supreme Court opinions often inject their own ideology later quoted as law: ‘Corporations are people’-Citizens United is a Clerk-only inclusion never uttered by SCOTUS. It’s scary that Constitutional hypocrite Ted Cruz clerked for racist Chief Justice William Rehnquist in 1996.

    This proves Kennedy is too old… retire him.
