Supreme Court admits halt to gay marriage in Nevada was error (Video)

A Supreme Court justice did not mean to halt same-sex marriage in Nevada, a spokeswoman said, clarifying an order that could have been interpreted to include the state.

Yesterday’s order from Kennedy was an error that the justice corrected with a second order several hours later. By that time, however, Nevada officials had decided to hold off on issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples until they could be certain the legal situation was settled.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco declared bans on same-sex marriage in Idaho and Nevada illegal Tuesday. Idaho quickly asked the Supreme Court for a delay, but Nevada planned to allow same-sex weddings to proceed.
