CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - The University of Virginia will host a panel discussion this week on same-sex marriage. The discussion is set for 3:30 p.m. Thursday in Newcomb Hall Ballroom. It's free and open to the public.
Panelists include UVA law professor Kerry Abrams, American Civil Liberties Union of Virginia Executive Director Claire Guthrie Gastanaga, and Equality Virginia Executive Director James Parrish.
They will discuss the U.S. Supreme Court decision in June that struck down parts of a federal law that denied government benefits to same-sex couples, and the ruling's implications for Virginia.
