Family Law Attorney Joseph C. Noto wants you to know that the New Jersey Supreme Court on Friday refused to issue a stay while the state attorney general appeals a judge’s ruling that allows same-sex marriage. The court said the state had not shown a reasonable probability it would succeed on the appeal, nor that it would suffer irreparable harm without a stay. It also found, in balancing relative hardships, that the plaintiffs would suffer more if a stay were granted. The order means state and local officials must accept applications by same-sex couples for marriage licenses beginning today. Jospeh Noto says that in NJ many same sex marriages will be had in the upcoming months.
