Groups urge Alabama Supreme Court to resist marriage ruling

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – Two groups are urging the Alabama Supreme Court to resist the U.S Supreme Court ruling that legalized same-sex marriage nationwide.

The Alabama Policy Institute and the Alabama Citizens Action Program in court filings earlier this month urged the court to resist the ruling the same way some state’s resisted pro-slavery laws. At a minimum, they urged the justices to protect probate judges who don’t want to issue the licenses on religious grounds.

The Alabama justices asked for input on what to do next on same-sex marriage. The court in March directed probate judges to refuse the licenses.

Some probate judges say the issue was ended with the federal decision overturning state bans on same-sex marriage.
