Joseph C. Noto Bergen County Family Law Attorney and NJ Same Sex Marriage

Joseph C. Noto, a family law attorney in Bergen county NJ,  wants everyone to know that the New Jersey Supreme Court on Friday refused to issue a stay while the state attorney general appeals a judge’s ruling that allows same-sex marriage. The court said the state had not shown a reasonable probability it would succeed on the appeal, nor that it would suffer irreparable harm without a stay. It also found, in balancing relative hardships, that the plaintiffs would suffer more if a stay were granted. The order means state and local officials must accept applications by same-sex couples for marriage licenses beginning today. Joseph Noto says this is a long time coming for the many gay people in New Jersey.
