US: Appeals court to hear arguments around Virginia same-sex marriage ban
An appeals court in the US state of Virginia will today hear arguments around the state’s ban on same-sex marriage.
Herring said Judge Wright Allen was right in citing the 1967 Supreme Court case which which invalidated state laws which prohibited interracial marriage.
A three judge panel at the 4th US Circuit Court of Appeals will today review the decision of Judge Wright Allen.
The panel will decide whether her decision to strike-down the 2006 voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional.
