The Supreme Court on Monday granted Utah’s request for a temporary stay on same-sex marriages in the state, the Associated Press reported.
In December, a federal court struck down Utah’s ban on same-sex marriage.
Utah asked the federal court that struck down the ban and an appeals court for a temporary stay on the ruling, which keeps counties from issuing licenses to gay couples while the state appeals the ruling.
Utah’s request for a stay was denied three times before the Supreme Court issued a stay, and by then most counties were issuing marriage licenses to all couples.
