Courts - New Jersey Supreme Court unanimously refuses stay in same sex marriage ruling
Updating this Sept. 27th ILB post, and this one from Oct. 11th, the Supreme Court of New Jersey today refused to stay trial Judge Mary Jacobson's ruling, saying, "among other reasons, the State has not shown a reasonable probability of success on the merits." Therefore, the trial court's order, directing state officials to permit otherwise eligible same-sex couples to enter into civil marriage starting Oct. 21, remains in effect.
Lyle Denniston of SCOTUSblog has this post, along with a link to the NJ Supreme Court ruling. The Sept. 27th ILB post includes this link to the trial court ruling (along with other documents, including the NJ SCt ruling).
