The 1st Circuit Court of Appeals has put a case challenging Puerto Rico's ban on same-sex marriage on hold pending the outcome of the upcoming Supreme Court hearing of four same-sex marriage cases set to take place at the end of April.
Plaintiffs-appellants ask this court to schedule oral argument "as soon as possible and, in any event, no later than this Court's July/August 2015 sitting." In view of the cases pending before the Supreme Court, we think it is premature to set an oral argument date at this time. Within 14days of the Supreme Court's decision in the same-sex marriage cases, Obergefell v. Hodges, No.14-556, etc., the parties shall confer and propose a schedule for further proceedings.
