Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor has once again stood up for state marriage laws, this time blocking same-sex marriages in Kansas while a lower court judge’s ruling against the law is under appeal. Federal Judge Daniel Crabtree ruled last week that Kansas must allow same-sex marriages while litigation over the issue takes place in federal district court. Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt has appealed that ruling, and the plaintiffs, who are represented by the American Civil Liberties Union, have until 5 p.m. today to respond.
