Salt Lake City, Utah (CNN) Officials with the state of Utah are asking the Supreme Court to immediately block a judge's ruling allowing same-sex marriage in the state.

They filed the appeal today with Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who could rule alone or ask the whole court to weigh in.

Any ruling would not be the final word, but a limited, temporary step.
Earlier this month, a federal judge struck down Utah’s same-sex marriage ban.

After his ruling, same-sex couples lined up at courthouses to get married.
