Judge Mulls Request to Block Utah Gay Weddings

Ad Feedback

A federal judge in Utah is considering a request from the state to block gay weddings that have been taking place throughout the weekend.

On Friday, U.S. District Judge Robert J. Shelby overturned Utah's ban on gay marriage, saying it violates gay couples' rights under the Fourteen Amendment.

Following that ruling, gay couples flocked to a county clerk's office to get marriage licenses after the ruling.

The decision has put Utah in the national spotlight because of its long-standing opposition to gay marriage.

Lawyers for the state want the ruling put on hold as they appeal the decision.
