Angela Schaefer (left), 31, and longtime partner, Jennifer Schaefer, 28, last month got an application for a marriage license at the Johnson County clerk’s office after a federal court ruled Kansas’ ban on same-sex marriages was unconstitutional. On Monday, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor issued an order temporarily blocking same-sex marriages in Kansas after the state appealed the lower court’s ruling. Sotomayor’s order seeks a response from the American Civil Liberties Union to the appeal by Attorney General Derek Schmidt.
