Supreme Court blocks same-sex marriages in Utah
UTAH (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The Supreme Court has temporarily blocked same-sex marriages in Utah while an appeals court considers the matter.
Hundreds of gay couples have tied the knot since December 20th. That's when a district court judge said the state's 2004 law banning same-sex marriage was unconstitutional.
But the U.S. Supreme Court put a halt to them Monday by granting the State of Utah a stay on a federal judge's ruling that two other courts previously denied.
The decision stays in effect while the court of appeals considers the case.
