The 8th Circuit Court of Appeals, with one judge dissenting, granted an administrative stay of the ruling to end the lockout.

Basically, the lockout is back on until they can consider the full stay, which would go through the decision on the appeal.

That decision should come sometime early next week.

The two judges who voted for the stay were appointed by President Ronald Reagan. The one dissenter, Judge Kermit Bye, was appointed by President Bill Clinton. He dissented on the grounds that it wasn't an emergency situation.

There was nothing in the ruling that indicates they will rule one way or the other on the stay.
