AG asking state courts to stop considering gay marriage cases until high court decides.
Attorney General Pam Bondi filed two motions on Friday in a state appeals court, requesting a freeze on appeals of cases concerning the state’s constitutional amendment banning gay marriage. Voters approved the amendment in 2008.
Judges in four Florida counties have overturned the ban, but no marriage licenses are being issued because Bondi has appealed each case.
Bondi says the state will defer to the Supreme Court and that any further state proceedings are a waste of judicial resources. Utah and Oklahoma this week asked the Supreme Court to decide the issue.
