SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The waiting game continues for gay and lesbian couples in Utah after the U.S. Supreme Court announced Thursday that it has taken no action yet on appeals asking it to take up the issue of same-sex marriage.

Utah is one of five states along with Indiana, Oklahoma, Virginia and Wisconsin that has asked the high court to review appellate court rulings striking down gay marriage bans.

The justices meet again on October 10 to consider new cases, and decisions about what to hear could be announced then or on October 14.

In Utah, both state officials and the plaintiffs want the justices to rule so there can be clarity on the issue.

Plaintiff Moudi Sbeity said families suffer each day that the matter remains unsettled.

Utah state officials weren’t immediately available for comment.
