South Carolina AG Asks Fourth Circuit Court To Pause On Same-Sex Marriage Appeal

South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson has already asked the 4th Circuit to consider his request for appeal of the overturning of his state’s ban on same-sex marriage.

Yesterday, however, he changed course and petitioned the Fourth Circuit Court to NOT rule on his previous marriage appeal until the Supreme Court issues a decision on the cases out of Sixth Circuit.

What Wilson, and Attorneys General in other states, is attempting to do is keep his options open so that should SCOTUS rule against marriage equality via the 6th Circuit cases, he can undo the ruling on his state.
