VICTORY: the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals has just struck down Viriginia’s ban on marriage for same-sex couples. The decision marks the second time since SCOTUS struck down the federal Defense of Marriage Act last year that a federal appeals court has declared that state laws denying same-sex couples the freedom to marry or refuse to recognize the out-of-state marriages of same-sex couples are unconstitutional.
