Merryday got Potter and Dandar to agree to stop all proceedings in state court -- including the church collecting the $130,000 judgment -- until both sides can present Merryday with full briefings and oral arguments.

However, Senior Circuit Judge Robert Beach, who found Dandar in contempt and levied the $130,000 judgment, said he isn't sure such an agreement can really halt what he's done. In fact, Beach said, he believes only a state appeals court could overturn his decision, not a federal judge.
