USA, New Jersey: Group of Gay Couples Files Brief Urging Go Ahead for Weddings

Written by scott on October 15th, 2013

New Jersey mapA brief filed today urged the state Supreme Court to allow same sex weddings to begin next week while the case is litigated.

Edge Boston reports:

A group of gay couples is stating in legal papers why they want the state to grant them marriage licenses, even while the state’s top court weighs whether it has to allow same-sex marriage. The brief due today is the latest in a flurry of court filings in New Jersey on gay marriage. A state judge ruled last month that the state must recognize same-sex nuptials starting Monday. But Gov. Chris Christie’s administration has appealed the order and asked that the implementation date be put on hold while the court decides the overall case.

Here’s hoping the weddings begin in New Jersey next week!
