More court filings in the same-sex marriage case. Paperwork has been filed by two clerks of circuit court. One in Northern Virginia wants the U.S. Supreme Court to hear arguments for keeping the state constitutional ban against same-sex marriage. Michèle McQuigg of Prince William County wants the high court to reverse two recent federal court rulings that overturned the ban. McQuigg is the second clerk to send a request to the Supreme Court. George Schaefer of Norfolk Circuit told the court the 50 states should be allowed to define marriage for themselves. Two gay Tidewater residents sued Schaefer last year after he refused to grant them a marriage license.
