Another judge rules Florida's marriage equality ban unconstitutional

A federal judge in Tallahassee, Florida, has joined the previous rulings of the judges in four counties in declaring the state's ban on marriage equality unconstitutional.

The Associated Press reports:

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi has appealed the previous rulings striking down the ban in Broward, Miami-Dade, Monroe and Palm Beach counties. Hinkle's ruling allows time for appeals in the federal case.

U.S. District Judge Robert L. Hinkle also issued a stay on the ruling, meaning that marriages will not begin in Florida anytime soon.
