Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's administration is asking a court to consider an emergency appeal in its effort to delay the start of same-sex marriages in the state.
A state judge on Thursday refused to delay her order that New Jersey grant marriage licenses for same-sex couples starting Oct. 21.
The Christie administration has asked an appeals court judge to consider an emergency challenge to that order. Christie wants same-sex marriages put on hold at least until all appeals can be resolved.
