TOPEKA, Kan. — Kansas is asking a federal appeals court to stay a judge’s preliminary injunction against the state enforcing its gay-marriage ban.
The state attorney general’s office filed the request Thursday with the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver, a day after appealing a ruling from U.S. District Judge Daniel Crabtree.
The judge ruled in lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union for two lesbian couples who were denied marriage licenses.
Kansas wants Crabtree’s ruling stayed until the appeals court decides the case.
