SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Utah officials are scrambling Monday to halt same-sex marriages as hundreds of gay couples lined up at local clerks' offices to wed.
Acting state Attorney General Brian Tarbet filed an emergency request Monday with a federal appeals court for a temporary stay to stop licenses from being issued.
The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected a similar request on Sunday and clerks were issuing the licenses to gay couples Monday morning.
State officials have also asked a federal judge to block the weddings, and a hearing on that request was happening Monday.
