Virginia's marriage equality ban ruled unconstitutional

The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday ruled that Virginia's ban on marriage for same-sex couples is unconstitutional. In the decision, Judge Henry Floyd wrote, “We recognize that same-sex marriage makes some people deeply uncomfortable. However, inertia and apprehension are not legitimate bases for denying same-sex couples due process and equal protection of the laws.”
