Same-sex marriage is the law of the land, but the legal battle between Attorney General Pam Bondi and gay couples in Florida continues to drag on.

Lawyers for plaintiffs in a key Florida gay-marriage lawsuit asked a federal appeals court Thursday to reject Bondi’s request to dismiss the case as moot. The plaintiffs want Tallahassee U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle, who ruled last year that Florida’s voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional, to issue a permanent injunction against the state.
