Napa County ready to resume same gender marriages immediately

Judge Walker announced that he will publish his decision on the temporary stay (the "pause" on same-sex marriages) Thursday, August 12 at noon. Joe.My.God. has published this link to find the ruling when it is issued. (SFGate has shared this link to watch live video outside of San Francisco City Hall.)

I sent an inquiry to our local County Recorder-Clerk, John Tuteur as to how quickly Napa is ready to resume same-sex marriages, and this was his (very supportive!) reply:
"Our staff is ready to issue marriage licenses to same gender couples immediately if the stay is lifted by Judge Walker. We are also prepared to perform ceremonies for same gender couples. We have had gender neutral forms since May 17, 2008.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance, JOHN TUTEUR, NAPA COUNTY ASSESSOR-RECORDER-COUNTY CLERK"
