“ALA. CONST. ART. I, § 36.03 (2006) and ALA. CODE 1975 § 30-1-19 are hereby DECLARED to be unconstitutional because they violate they Due Process Clause and the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. The defendant Luther Strange, in his capacity as Attorney General for the State of Alabama, is hereby ENJOINED from enforcing those laws.”Additionally, Granade provides no stay in her ruling, nor does she provide any discussion of whether a stay was considered. Without a stay, the ruling goes into effect immediately — meaning Granade’s intention appears to be that same-sex couples can marry in Alabama immediately.
