Same-sex weddings could begin in Alabama next week after a U.S. appeals court on Tuesday refused a request by the state's attorney general to delay gay marriages until the U.S. Supreme Court decides whether states can forbid them.

Strange said he was disappointed by the ruling and immediately filed a motion asking the U.S. Supreme Court to halt the decision by a federal judge that struck down Alabama's laws banning same-sex marriages last month.
