A Colorado federal appeals court extended the length of a stay put in place after the state’s same-sex marriage ban was ruled unconstitutional.

The ruling was made on Thursday by the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.

The stay is expected to stay in place until the US Supreme Court rules on marriage equality.

In a recent interview with Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, she said she expects the Supreme Court court to rule on the issue by 2016 at latest.

On 24 July, Colorado’s same-sex marriage ban was struck down by a federal judge.
