    South Carolina Supreme Court Halts Same-Sex Marriage Licenses


    Posted: 10/09/2014 12:29 pm EDT Updated: 10/09/2014 12:59 pm EDT





    COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) The South Carolina Supreme Court is ordering state probate courts not to issue same-sex marriage licenses until a federal judge decides whether the state constitution's ban on the unions is legal.

    The Supreme Court's order disappointed dozens of gay couples in a whirlwind week of legal maneuvers.

    On the more interesting side, I wonder if judgements in this direction make it more likely that SCOTUS will take up the issue.

    The South Carolina Supreme court does not have authority over US Circuit Courts of Appeals. South Carolina is under the jurisdiction of the US 4th Circuit court of appeals.

    There are 13 regional US circuit courts of appeal. Court Locator


    This is like the Louisiana state judge making a ruling on SSM. Amusing but not relevant.

    Damn right! If we can stop gay people from getting married then maybe that will significantly discourage gay people from having gay sex and less gay sex in turn will reduce the number of gay babies that are born. Brilliant!

    Will you be moving to SC sometime soon? The political climate there seems to suit you far more than WA.

    again, at the fear of getting further warnings, I must point out how any other issue which produces multiple(and constant) threads like these ALWAYS get there own subject forum. Every day there is some minor news on this subject, the threads begin anew every day, and they end up always devolving into this "we're the GOOD guys, the south is bigoted" garbage. Just MOVE it all to it's own forum and that way when someone is interested in debated this thing into the GROUND on a 24 hour basis, they can. It's just getting tiresome to see it always be 3 of the top 7 threads every day of the week. VERY tiresome.

    No one has ever been able to answer the question: How does two people getting married, gay or straight affect you negatively?

    SSM hurts no one, except maybe for the bigots and haters blood pressures.
