The Alabama Supreme Court on Tuesday ordered probate judges in the state to stop issuing licenses for same-sex marriages, stating in a 134-page order than marriage is between one man and one woman under Alabama law. Probate judges have five business days to respond to the order if they don't think they are bound to uphold it. In February, a federal court in Mobile County had cleared the path for same-sex marriages to begin in the state. WCYB has more from CNN.
