The Alabama Supreme Court will hear a petition from two conservative groups looking to halt same-sex marriage in the state.
The court voted 6 to 2 to hear arguments from the Alabama Policy Institute and Alabama Citizens Action Program. They claim that U.S. District Judge Callie Granade's ruling which declared Alabama's ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional doesn't apply to Alabama's probate judges.

The co-founder and former president of the Alabama Policy Institute, Gary Palmer of Birmingham, has decided to go from advising politicians to being a politician.
The winner of Alabama's presidential primary in March, Rick Santorum, is headed back to the state.
The former Pennsylvania senator will address the Alabama Policy Institute's annual dinner Thursday night in Birmingham. Institute President Gary Palmer says Santorum will talk about where conservatives should look for hope in changing the direction of the country. Santorum participated in the institute's presidential candidate forum in Mobile in March.
Santorum recently said he's open to considering another presidential run in 2016.
