MS Attorney General: Fifth Circuit lifts stay in same-sex marriage case

JACKSON, MS -

This is a release statement from the Mississippi Attorney General. 

“The United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit has this afternoon lifted the stay of the preliminary injunction. Mississippi’s laws prohibiting same sex marriage are now officially declared unconstitutional and unenforceable by the Federal Court. This ruling makes clear that marriage licenses should be issued to same sex couples.”- Attorney General Jim Hood
