Decision Day

KEEP IN MIND: WE DO NOT KNOW WHEN THIS EVENT WILL BE. We believe it could be any day in July.

Any day now, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals could issue a ruling on the constitutionality of Virginia's ban on marriage equality (Bostic v. Schaefer). The ruling could also have implications for marriage in three other states in the Fourth Circuit, including North Carolina, setting binding precedent for Amendment One challenges in Federal district court and possibly laying legal groundwork for the Supreme Court to affirm the freedom to marry nationwide. 

We don't know when or how the Fourth Circuit will rule. But a favorable ruling in the Virginia case could bring us that much closer to the freedom to marry in North Carolina, South Carolina, and West Virginia.

    Any day now... "The 4th Circuit is already the fastest appeals court of the 13 in the United States, Tobias said. “The median time interval from argument to opinion in nonexpedited appeals is 2.2 months."
