(WTVM) – In an order issued on Wednesday, an Alabama U.S. District judge has ordered all of the state's probate judges to comply with a landmark Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage.
United States District Court Judge for the Southern District of Alabama Callie V.S. Granade called for all Alabama judges to comply with the Supreme Court's ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges, in all related cases throughout the state, canceling all injunctions on civil actions hindering the issuance of marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 on June 26 that marriage licenses can be issued to same-sex couples nationwide.
The one-page order says in full:
Judge Granade ruled twice in 2015 that Alabama's same-sex marriage ban was unconstitutional, and violated the 14th Amendment. Granade's orders reference the case of Strawser, et al. v. Strange.
