Thursday a new trial begins in Alabama following the refusal of some counties to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

Indeed, despite the fact that a federal judge has ruled unconstitutional the marriage equality ban and that the U.S. Supreme Court has also allowed same-sex marriages to begin on Monday in the state, a judge in Alabama, Roy Moore, ordered the state's probate judges not to allow equal marriage.

According to The Associated PressThe Associated Press, Moore has already disobeyed an order of a federal court in 2003, but was re-elected in 2012.

As a result, the Mobile County probate judge refused to issue same-sex marriage licenses and is now sued by a gay couple.

Fortunately, some counties have refused to comply with this order and same-sex marriage licenses have been issued for example in Montgomery, Huntsville and Birmingham. In all 19 counties out of 67.
