SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A federal appeals court says it will wait at least 25 days before allowing gay marriages to resume in California.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Wednesday that it will take at least that long for the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling to become official.

The San Francisco-based court said it may continue to bar gay marriages even beyond that if proponents of Proposition 8, the state's gay marriage ban, ask for a rehearing.

The U.S. Supreme Court refused Wednesday to rule on Proposition 8.
