A federal appeals court has scheduled arguments In May on Virginia’s constitutional ban against same-sex marriage. The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has outlined a schedule that expedites the case with briefs scheduled for later this month. The Court will hear an appeal of the ruling from a federal judge in Norfolk who calld the state ban unconstitutional but delayed action while it’s appealed. The expedited review was sought by two same-sex couples as well as Attorney General Mark Herring. That means gay couples in Virginia still can’t marry until the case is ultimately resolved. The case could be one of several that might end up before the U.S. Supreme Court.
