Group asks high court to block Nevada gay marriage
LAS VEGAS - A group fighting to keep Nevada's state ban on same-sex marriage wants the U.S. Supreme Court to reinstate a short-lived ruling that blocked weddings from taking place.
Coalition for the Protection of Marriage attorney Monte Neil Stewart says he filed a request for Justice Anthony Kennedy to reinstate a stay on Wednesday afternoon.
The state has been in limbo since the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that gay couples' equal protection rights were violated by same-sex wedding bans in Nevada and Utah.
Nevada's ban stems from a state constitutional amendment approved by voters in 2002.
