Florida Appeals Rulings Overturning Gay-Marriage Ban

A number of similar rulings around the country have been put on hold while appeals are pursued.

MIAMI (AP) — Florida officials are appealing several court rulings overturning the state's ban on gay marriage.

Attorney General Pam Bondi said in a motion filed late Friday that the sole legal issue in the case is the constitutional validity of the state ban. The motion says any changes to it should come from voters, not the courts. Florida voters approved the ban in 2008.

Several judges around the state have recently overturned the state's ban on same-sex marriage. Bondi has asked judges to stop ruling on the issue until the U.S. Supreme Court decides whether states can ban gay marriage.

A number of similar rulings around the country have been put on hold while appeals are pursued.
