The county at the center of Florida's gay marriage debate wants a judge to clarify his order allowing a same-sex couple to obtain a marriage license there.

In a motion filed late Tuesday, Washington County asked a federal judge to say whether his ruling applies to just one couple or to any same-sex couple seeking a marriage license in the county.

The Panhandle county became the focus of Florida's gay marriage debate after a lawsuit filed by two men seeking to be married there became a key basis for the judge's ruling that the state's same-sex marriage ban is unconstitutional. The judge put the ruling on hold until Jan. 5.
