Tennessee officials want the U.S. Supreme Court to keep an antigay ruling in place, upholding the state's ban on same-sex marriage.
The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals found bans on same-sex marriage in Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, and Michigan to be perfectly lawful.
The Supreme Court justice's latest remarks seem to contradict her own earlier prediction that the court will not duck the issue of marriage equality.
A Vietnam veteran and a group of his friends pooled funds to purchase a billboard condemning the 'abomination' of homosexuality on Portland, Tennessee's Highway 52.
That statement came from one of three judges who today heard appeals in marriage equality cases from four states.
After consulting with the statewide equality organization, Mint Springs Farm near Nashville, Tenn., decided that it will allow same-sex couples to host weddings and commitment ceremonies on its grounds.
Anthony Wilfert and Brian Blas thought they'd found the perfect place to hold their commitment ceremony, until they received an email claiming Tennessee's prohibition on same-sex marriage made the couple ineligible for booking.
By granting the Tennessee attorney general's request for a stay, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals voided the recently recognized legal marriages of three same-sex couples.
