Gay Marriage
(2008-05-30)
(wgvu) - SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The attorneys general of 10 states are
urging the California Supreme Court to delay finalizing its ruling
to legalize same-sex marriage.
The states involved are Alaska, Colorado, Florida, Idaho,
Michigan, Nebraska, New Hampshire, South Carolina, South Dakota and
Utah.
The attorneys general say they have an interest in the case
because they would have to determine if their states would
recognize the marriage of gay residents who wed in California. They
want the court to stay its ruling until after the November
election, when voters likely will decide whether to amend the state
constitution to ban gay marriage.
California Attorney General Jerry Brown, whose office originally
argued to uphold the state's one man-one woman marriage laws, is
urging the Supreme Court not to grant the stay.
