Wall St. Journal: Judge Refuses to Stay Stem-Cell Ruling, by Brent Kendall:
A federal judge refused Tuesday to stay his ruling that blocked the federal government from funding human embryonic stem-cell research.
In a three-page order, U.S. Chief District Court Judge Royce Lamberth in Washington denied the Obama administration's emergency request to stay a preliminary injunction against federal funding while the government appeals the judge's ruling.
Judge Lamberth said issuing a temporary stay of his earlier ruling would flout the will of Congress. . . .
