Supreme Court Blocks Gay Marriage In Virginia

Supreme Court Blocks Gay Marriage In Virginia
Posted Wednesday, August 20th 2014 @ 3pm

Same-sex marriages in Virginia won't become legal Thursday after the U.S. Supreme Court put a hold on a lower court ruling.  

The high court stayed a decision by a Richmond Court of Appeals which ruled the state's ban on gay marriages is unconstitutional and that such marriages would be legal as of tomorrow.  

Virginia is among a growing number of states where same-sex marriage bans have been struck down by federal courts.
