VA AG Hopes to Expedite Appeal of Same-Sex Marriage Ban

Posted: Updated:

Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring wants to expedite the resolution of the case challenging the state's ban on same-sex marriage. The attorney general's office filed a notice of appeal Monday in the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals intended to move the case more quickly through the appeals process.

A federal judge ruled earlier this month the state's ban on same-sex marriage violates the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

The Fourth Circuit has set a briefing schedule for the appeal. Click here for the briefing order.
