Alabama Court Stops, Then Resumes, Issuing Same-Sex Marriage Licenses

The Madison County Courthouse in Huntsville, Alabama, has reportedly started issuing same-sex marriage licenses.

The news comes a day after the Alabama Supreme Court's Chief Justice Roy Moore attempted to bar the issuing of same-sex marriage licenses.

Madison was one of a handful of counties to follow Moore's order. At least three others opted to stop issuing marriage licenses to all couples.

Moore had issued a similar order in February 2015.
