A federal judge heard oral arguments Tuesday involving a prohibition of gay and lesbian marriages. Attorney General Mark Herring (pictured) is supporting a gay Norfolk couple who filed a federal lawsuit challenging Virginia’s  constitutional amendment that bans same-sex marriages. Herring says the Commonwealth is now standing on the right side of history as it opposes the 2006 amendment. A number of protesters mobilized outside the Norfolk courthouse where the legal challenge was filed. Judge Arenda Wright Allen says she will rule on the case soon.
