STATE – Republican Gov. Chris Christie’s administration filed a motion to delay the Oct. 21 start date for same-sex couples to be able to get married in New Jersey.

Last week, Judge Mary C. Jacobson issued a ruling that requires public officials to marry same-sex couples who met all of the other requirements to receive a marriage license beginning on Oct. 21.

Acting Attorney General John J. Hoffman filed a motion requesting a stay of the judge’s decision pending an appeal.

The plaintiffs in the case will have until Oct. 4 to file their reply.
