The National Organization for Marriage Discrimination's bad day continues. This morning, it filed an emergency motion with the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals demanding a stay of today's forthcoming marriage equality ruling in Oregon. (Odds are good that U.S. District Judge Michael McShane will rule in favor of the freedom to marry; the ruling is due to be released in approximately 40 minutes.)

But this hour, the Ninth Circuit dealt NOM another blow, denying their request to block the ruling. Looks like it'll be released at 3 P.M. Eastern (noon local time) as scheduled.

Sorry NOM, but it looks like your latest attempt at stonewalling has once again fallen flat.

A copy of the ruling is after the jump, via Equality Case Files.
