TRENTON – Gov. Chris Christie’s administration indicated Friday it will appeal a Superior Court’s ruling that paved the way for same sex marriage in the Garden State.
“Governor Christie has always maintained that he would abide by the will of the voters on the issue of marriage equality and called for it to be on the ballot this Election Day,” Christie spokesman Michael Drewniak said in a statement. “Since the legislature refused to allow the people to decide expeditiously, we will let the Supreme Court make this constitutional determination.”
Friday's court ruling set the stage for same-sex couples to wed in the Garden State as soon as Oct. 21.
However, the administration indicated in its statement the decision will now be appealed to the state's Supreme Court.
