Today the Texas Supreme Court granted the requests of the Texas Attorney General to stay two court rulings that declared Texas marriage law unconstitutional. General Ken Paxton issued the following statement:

“The Court’s action upholds our state constitution and stays these rulings by activist judges in Travis County. The same-sex marriage license issued by the Travis County Clerk is void, just as any license issued in violation of state law would be. I will continue to defend the will of the people of Texas, who have defined marriage as between one man and one woman, against any judicial activism or overreach.”
