Virginia has responded to a request from John Roberts, the Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Attorney General Mark Herring agrees with federal judges who ruled that Virginia’s 2006 constitutional amendment that bans same-sex marriages is unconstitutional. Despite that, Herring has told Roberts he believes the Supreme Court should grant a stay in this case. He says a stay would be warranted because of the potential negative impact on Virginia children, families, and businesses if the Supreme Court eventually rules against same-sex marriages. He says it could force an unwinding of Virginians’ marriages, adoptions, inheritances, or workplace benefits. The request will be considered either by Chief Justice John Roberts or the full court.
