Judge Lifts Stay On Gay Marriage In Miami-Dade County

First new decision in our favour of 2015!!

A circuit judge lifted the stay on gay marriage in Miami-Dade County Monday, making it the first county to allow same-sex marriages in the state of Florida.

Circuit Judge Sarah Zabel ruled the ban on gay marriage unconstitutional in July, but stayed the order. Following her Monday decision, same-sex marriages will begin in the county at 2 p.m. EDT.

The case in Miami-Dade County, Pareto v. Ruvin, was brought by six same-sex couples in January of 2014, and Zabel heard the case in early July. She issued her initial ruling and stay at the end of that month.
