UPDATE (9:45 a.m. EST, Jan. 26): The judge who struck down Alabama’s marriage law Friday issued a stay of her decision for two weeks, giving the state time to appeal. The state will ask the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals if it will delay the issuance of marriage licenses to same-sex couples until the Supreme Court rules on the topic this summer. If an appeal is not granted within two weeks, same-sex marriages can begin in Alabama.
