The U.S. Supreme Court has refused to block gay marriages in South Carolina, the Washington Post reports. The high court today denied a request by Republican Attorney General Alan Wilson to block the marriages while he challenges a federal judge’s recent order that went into effect at noon today and strikes down the state’s ban. Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas dissented, although the court nor the dissenters gave any explanation, according to SCOTUSblog.
