A federal judge earlier this month decided to keep Florida’s ban in place through Jan. 5. That means no same-sex marriages can take place for now.
U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle in August ruled the Florida gay marriage ban was unconstitutional. But he stayed the effect of his decision, hoping to avoid confusion while the state appealed it.
Those challenging Florida’s ban had asked Hinkle to change his mind after the U.S. Supreme Court refused to take up cases from other states.
Bondi has filed appeals in both state and federal appeals courts, seeking to overturn a number of rulings declaring Florida’s same-sex marriage ban unconstitutional by declaring that the trial courts’ rulings “were wrong.”
