Strange, in a motion filed Monday, asked U.S. District Judge Callie Granade to delay any more same-sex marriage decisions until the U.S. Supreme Court rules later this year.
Granade on Jan. 23 ruled Alabama’s gay marriage ban unconstitutional, beginning a twisting legal saga. Gay couples began marrying in most counties. However, the Alabama Supreme Court last week directed probate judges to stop giving licenses to same-sex couples.
Strange said that would only cause additional chaos and increase tension between the courts.
The U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments next month on whether gays and lesbians can marry nationwide.
