(Washington, DC) -- The U.S. Supreme Court is halting gay marriage in Utah until the 10th Circuit Court issues a ruling on the matter. The decision was handed down this morning. Two weeks ago a federal judge overturned Utah's voter-approved ban on gay marriage, and refused to stay his decision when it was appealed. The state's ban on gay marriage passed with 66 percent of voters approving it in 2004. Hundreds of gay couples in Utah have exchanged vows since a federal judge overturned the state's voter-approved ban on gay marriage two weeks ago.
