Gay couples will officially be allowed to marry at 12:01 am on Monday after the New Jersey Supreme Court refused to issue a stay in its ruling that the state’s ban is unconstitutional this afternoon.
Lambda Legal issued a press release a short time ago:
Today the New Jersey Supreme Court has stood on the side of equality and refused to delay the freedom to marry. We have been fighting an uphill battle for the dignity of marriage for years and we are finally within sight of the summit. However, this is not the time to rest, it is the time to recommit, and it is the time to pull out all the stops. We have to continue to push because we are in the fight of our lives. We will continue to demand that action be taken at the state house. We will not rest until we guarantee the freedom to marry to every New Jerseyan, and we are certain that it can never be taken away,” said Troy Stevenson, Executive Director of Garden State Equality.
Said Michael Drewniak, spokesman for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie:
