Supreme Court puts Utah same-sex marriages on hold

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court put a stop to same-sex marriages in conservative Utah on Monday pending the state’s appeal of a federal district court’s order that had legalized the unions.

The high court, acting on a petition sent to Justice Sonia Sotomayor, ruled that gay marriages cannot continue during the appeals process. The case is pending before the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.
