NOM filed the request Tuesday with Justice Anthony Kennedy.
Last week, U.S. District Judge Michael McShane ruled that the voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage was unconstitutional.
Oregon United, an active group supporting gay marriage in the state, says its legal team is ready to continue to fight for the right of all Oregonians.
“Today’s (Tuesday’s) motion is NOM’s latest, last-ditch attempt to keep loving Oregon families from sharing in the freedom to marry as long as they possibly can,” says Amy Ruiz, Oregon United for Marriage’s deputy campaign manager. “Just as they did last week, the legal team will vigorously defend against NOM’s latest scare tactic. Love is the law in Oregon. And try as they might, the National Organization for Marriage cannot and will not take that away.”
The justice in this case could act on the request or refer it to a full court to decide.
