Chief Justice Moore Orders Probate Judges Not to Issue Same-Sex Licenses

Chief Justice Roy Moore has issued an order to all probate judges in Alabama telling them not to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples tomorrow. The order reads:

“Effective immediately, no Probate Judge of the State of Alabama nor any agent or employee of any Alabama Probate Judge shall issue or recognize a marriage license that is inconsistent with the Alabama Constitution, which was amended in 2006 to define marriage between one man and one woman.”
A copy of the order was also sent to the Circuit and District Judges of Alabama.
