NOM Reacts to 9th Circuit Decision Refusing to Lift Stay on Judge Walker's Decision


WASHINGTON – The 9th Circuit Court today announced it would not lift its stay on Judge Vaughn Walker's decision overturning Proposition 8. The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) applauded the decision.

"This is good news for the people of California--and congratulations to the Dream Team of David Boies and Ted Olson for continuing their impressive streak of losses in actions not in Judge Walker's courtroom," said Brian Brown, president of NOM.

NOM was the single largest donor to the efforts supporting Proposition 8, defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman and through its early fundraising, is credited with helping get Prop 8 on the ballot.
