Same Sex Marriage in NJ Joseph C. Noto famly law attorney

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.
