A judge in the US state of Florida has cancelled a hearing on whether to grant a divorce to a same-sex couple.

Broward Circuit Judge Dale Cohen cancelled the hearing to allow Attorney General Pam Bondi to have formal notification about the case.

It had originally been set to take place on Wednesday afternoon.

The couple broke up four years ago after entering into a civil union in Vermont in 2002. Heather Brassner seeks a divorce from Megan Lade.

Florida’s Attorney General Pam Bondi has claimed that defending a ban on same-sex marriage doesn’t make her a homophobe – because she has many gay friends.

After Bondi lost legal battles in four separate counties, Florida’s same-sex marriage ban was declared unconstitutional by a federal judge last month, but the Republican plans to appeal.
