MONTGOMERY, Ala. - More Alabama counties are allowing same-sex marriage despite objections from the state's chief justice.

Probate officials in three counties said Tuesday they'll begin issuing marriage licenses after receiving legal clarification.

Many counties wouldn't issue licenses Monday after Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore ordered probate judges not to allow same-sex licenses.

Moore gave his order even though a federal court struck down the state's ban on gay marriage, and the U.S. Supreme Court rejected the state's attempt to overturn the order.

In a handful of other counties, hundreds of gay couples did get marriage licenses on Monday.
