One lawsuit challenging the gay marriage ban is on hold. That’s while another suit makes its way through the court system.┬áThe federal judge in the case points out that the two same-sex couples who filed the lawsuit in Harrisonburg have been allowed to intervene in a similar case in Norfolk. That one is scheduled to be heard next month by the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The judge says the matter is in the hands of the federal appeals court, making further proceedings in Harrisonburg unnecessary. The judge in the Norfolk case ruled that the state ban against same-sex marriage is unconstitutional.
