NJ Makes Final Case to Delay Same-Sex Marriages

The Christie administration has made its final case for why a judge should put on hold a ruling that would legalize gay marriage effective Oct. 21.

In a filing Monday, the state says allowing gay couples to marry starting in two weeks would make it difficult for the state’s top court to reverse course should it agree with the Christie administration’s anti-gay marriage stand.

The administration wants implementation of the ruling by Judge Mary Jacobson in Trenton delayed while higher courts consider the appeal.

Gay rights advocates say no stay should be granted because couples are hurt by a delay. Monday’s filing came in response to their opposition to the delay.

A decision on the stay is expected before Oct. 21.
