NOM Asks U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy to Block Oregon Gay Marriage Ruling

KennedyThe National Organization for Marriage, whose attempt to intervene in a case challenging Oregon's ban on gay marriage was rejected by U.S. District Judge Michael McShane before he struck the ban down, has appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court to block McShane's ruling, the AP reports:

The group, which opposes gay marriage, says it filed the request on Tuesday with Justice Anthony Kennedy, who handles such requests from the region that includes Oregon.

…The National Organization for Marriage is seeking a stay of that ruling while it appeals an earlier decision that prohibited the group from defending the marriage ban on behalf of its Oregon members.
