Florida Same-Sex Marriage Ban To Remain In Effect During Appeals Process

Jul 22, 2014

Last Friday morning, a local couple went downtown to Jacksonville’s Clerk of Courts office with a request they say they’d been waiting years to make —  a marriage license.

Their move came after a Monroe County judge ruled the state’s ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional.

Yesterday, there were new developments in Florida’s fight over same-sex marriage. As of this morning, the state’s same-sex marriage ban remains in effect while it is appealed, perhaps all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Gregory Pingree, professor with Florida Coastal School of Law, joined Melissa Ross with more on the latest developments.
