The battle over same-sex marriage in Utah continues.

A U.S. District Judge, Robert Shelby, ruled late last year the state’s ban on same-sex marriage violated same-sex couples constitutional rights.   The state of Utah appealed the ruling on December 20th, but not before some 900 couples had gotten married.

The U.S. Supreme Court has issued a temporary hold on same-sex marriages until the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver and examine the case and decide if they are going to uphold Judge Shelby’s ruling, or side with the state of Utah.

No timetable was released Monday as to when the ruling could come from the 10th Circuit court.
