A federal court hearing this week on a challenge to Utah's ban on same-sex marriage will have ramifications for Wyoming and other western states.
West Virginia University's law school is holding a discussion about West Virginia and marriage equality.
Hours after federal judges struck down bans on same-sex marriage in Utah and Oklahoma, activist Evan Wolfson and his colleagues reached out to gay rights groups in the deeply conservative states with both congratulations and a reminder: Court wins alone won't be enough.
Almost overnight, Virginia has emerged as a critical state in the nationwide fight to grant gay men and women the right to wed.
The Supreme Court's rulings on same-sex marriage are barely a month old, but they have generated a wave of lawsuits and political battles as gay-rights supporters continue their quest to hoist the rainbow flag in every state.
The number of states expected to legalize gay marriage may be topping out and, unless the U.S. Supreme Court decides otherwise, there are few signs that a large number of other states will follow suit anytime soon. Can the United States live with such irreconcilable differences?
For years, foes of same-sex marriage had a potent talking point: They'd won every time the issue went to a popular vote. That winning streak has now been shattered in a multistate electoral sweep by gay-marriage supporters — a historic tipping point likely to influence other states and possibly even the Supreme Court.
He said the court's decision will effectively be the "law of the land" for the six states in the 10th Circuit.
If that occurs, Kitchen V. Herbert could become a prime candidate for the U.S. Supreme Court to select in order to make a sweeping ruling that could affect the entire country, Wolfson said.
