Jones and Huntsman are planning on receiving their license just after midnight Monday, Jan. 5 and getting married immediately afterwards. In July 2014, after Huntsman and Jones filed suit protesting Florida's 2008 ban on same-sex marriage, Keys Judge Luis Garcia ruled the ban was discriminatory and unconstitutional. A state appeal held up the couple's marriage plans until U.S. Judge Robert Hinkle ruled Florida clerks can issue licenses to same-sex couples beginning after midnight Monday.
