afternoon, Monroe Chief Circuit Judge Luis Garcia, who last week overthrew Florida’s voter-approved constitutional respect for marriage as the union of one man, one woman, denied a request to lift an automatic legal stay that prevents them or other homosexual individuals from "marrying" immediately.
“Based on decisions of the United States Supreme Court and other courts to stay proceedings in similar challenges, this court DENIES the Emergency Motion,” Garcia wrote. “The automatic stay, currently in place, shall remain in place until completion of appellate proceedings or until further order of this Court.”
