State asks Superior Ct. permission to appeal same-sex marriage stay denial

TRENTON – The state late Thursday went to Superior Court seeking to continue its battle against same-sex marriage in New Jersey.

The lower court earlier today denied the state’s request to stay same-sex marriage, scheduled to be permitted starting Oct. 21.

The state then filed with the appellate court as it pursues its opposition to Judge Mary Jacobson’s ruling on same-sex marriage.

The AG’s office argues in its filing today that there would be irreparable harm if a stay isn’t granted because the lower court declared unconstitutional a statutory structure, in this case the state’s civil union law.
