(CNN) – The New Jersey Supreme Court has denied the state’s motion for as stay in a same-sex marriage case. That means same-sex couples can legally tie the knot as soon as Monday.
The original ruling in the case was made by a state judge in late September. She cited the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in June that struck down part of the Defense of Marriage Act.
That ruling allowed same-sex spouses legally married in a state to receive federal benefits.
