Appeals court allows stem cell funding for now

A federal appeals court is permitting federal funding of stem cell research to proceed temporarily until the court rules on the merits of the Obama administration's position in the case.

The government is asking the appeals court in Washington to strike down a preliminary order by U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth blocking federal funding for some stem cell research. The three-member appeals panel says it is suspending Lamberth's ruling for now.

The appeals judges say they want more time to deal with issues in the government's appeal.
