Now that marriage equality is the law of the land in Wisconsin, the couples who married in a brief window between court actions in June will have their unions recognized.
The request followed a statement by Alaska's governor, who vowed to defend the marriage ban.
After losing five times in state and federal courts attempting to defend Florida's ban on same-sex marriage, Attorney General Pam Bondi now wants the state Supreme Court to decide the issue.
Marriage has been permanently legalized in Virginia, and same-sex couples are now free to wed. Two nearby states have also embraced marriage equality.
'As Alaska’s governor, I have a duty to defend and uphold the law and the Alaska Constitution,' said Gov. Sean Parnell while promising to appeal a ruling striking down the state's ban on same-sex marriage.
