US Supreme Court Won’t Intervene In Alabama Marriage Equality Case

Written by scott on February 9th, 2015

Alabama mapOnce again, the US Supreme Court has declined to step in to halt same sex weddings in a Southern State.

Equality on Trial reports:

This morning, the Supreme Court denied Alabama’s request to put same-sex marriages on hold pending the appeal of two cases. Justice Thomas and Justice Scalia dissented, writing, “Today’s decision represents yet another example of this Court’s increasingly cavalier attitude toward the States. Over the past few months, the Court has repeatedly denied stays of lower court judgments enjoining the enforcement of state laws on questionable constitutional grounds.

This means weddings will begin in the state today, and some counties are already marrying same sex couples.

    As I expected SCOTUS would do because they rule in favor of marriage equality. Congratulations to Alabama, the 37th state to support marriage equality.
