Same-sex marriage in the United States: San Francisco Superior court Judge James L. Warner postpones any decision to block the city and county of San Francisco, California, from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples and to void the 2,464 same-sex marriages that were performed in the city since February 12. This was on the grounds that the Proposition 22 Legal Defense and Education Fund's order for San Francisco to cease and desist issuing marriage licenses to and/or solemnizing marriages of same-sex couples to show cause before this court ... had an improper semicolon to do both, rather than one or the other, would have exceeded the judge's jurisdiction. //msnbc.msn.com/id/4251510/ (MSNBC)
