on-off-switch.jpgJustice Anthony Kennedy has lifted his stay on the Ninth Circuit's pro-marriage equality ruling as it applies to Nevada, allowing same-sex marriages to begin there.

However, the stay on the ruling as it applies to Idaho, which was requested by anti-gay Republican Governor Butch Otter (seriously, that's his name), remains in effect.

Go get married, Nevada! Sit tight, Idaho. Got whiplash yet?
