I didn't see where the Court had halted the issuing of Marriage Licenses until the hearing.....wonder why?

Are you thinking that this is a signal that the court already knows that the case against issuing licenses won't be won anyway? That there's not harm being done to anyone by their issuance?

It's very interesting, isn't it?

The question is who would be irreparably harmed? The plaintiffs would hardly be affected in any way. If anyone is harmed, it would be the applicants whose marriage license is subsequently invalidated. Obviously, this is a risk they understand and are willing to accept. So under what legal theory should an emergency injunction be issued?
