As I have previously discussed, New Jersey Judge Mary C. Jacobson recently ruled that New Jersey must allow gay couples to wed beginning October 21. Now, Governor Chris Christie's administration has requested that the highest court in New Jersey review the order. The administration claims that the state will suffer "irreparable harm" if it permits same-sex marriage without the review. It seems that both the democrats and republicans are hoping the matter will go straight to the state Supreme Court instead of through the intermediate court.
