In North Carolina: Judge lifts Stay on Gay Marriage!

Lord, I can't keep up!
A federal judge has lifted stays on two American Civil Liberties Union lawsuits that could clear the way for same-sex marriages in North Carolina.

Judge William Osteen, of the federal Middle District in Greensboro, on Wednesday lifted a stay in two cases involving same-sex couples, one of which involved three same-sex couples seeking state recognition of their out-of-state marriage.

Mike Meno, a spokesman for the ACLU of North Carolina, told WNCN that Osteen asked for a motion from the ACLU on the gay marriage issue. Meno said the ACLU expects Osteen to rule that gay North Carolinians may marry as soon as late Wednesday afternoon or Thursday.
