ALABAMA: Governor Tells SCOTUS That Gay Marriages Will “Invite Chaos”

Last night Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley filed a SCOTUS brief in support of Attorney General Luther Strange’s demand for a stay extension pending their June ruling. According to Bentley, allowing marriages to commence next week would “invite chaos” should SCOTUS ultimately rule against same-sex marriage. Read the brief at Equality Case Files. Also last night, the winning plaintiffs in Alabama’s two marriage equality cases filed SCOTUS briefs against extending the stay. Their briefs are here and here. The stay on Alabama marriage is due to expire on Monday.
