Upholding a February 2014 ruling, a federal appeals court agreed today that Virginia’s ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional!
We recognize that same-sex marriage makes some people deeply uncomfortable. However, inertia and apprehension are not legitimate bases for denying same-sex couples due process and equal protection of the laws. -Judge Henry Floyd
This decision sets a precedent for the entire 4th Circuit, which also includes West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Maryland, which already has marriage equality.
