Kansas Asks Appeals Court to Stay Marriage Ruling

KSAL StaffNovember 7, 2014

Kansas is asking a federal appeals court to stay a judge’s preliminary injunction against the state enforcing its gay-marriage ban.

The state attorney general’s office filed the request Thursday with the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver, a day after appealing a ruling from U.S. District Judge Daniel Crabtree.

The judge ruled in lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union for two lesbian couples who were denied marriage licenses.

But Crabtree noted in his decision this week that the 10th Circuit has struck down similar bans in Oklahoma and Utah. Crabtree stayed his order until Tuesday to give the state a chance to appeal it.

Kansas wants Crabtree’s ruling stayed until the appeals court decides the case.
