`Federal Judge Rules Virginia’s Same-Sex Marriage Ban Ruled Unconstitutional’

#AceWorldNews says that a federal judge ruled late Thursday that Virginia’s same-sex marriage ban is unconstitutional. The state’s “marriage laws unconstitutionally deny Virginia’s gay and lesbian citizens the fundamental freedom to choose to marry,” the ruling states, according to Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring.

The “laws deny Plaintiffs their rights to due process and equal protection guaranteed under the 14th Amendment” of the US Constitution,” the judge wrote. Herring said the court has stayed the execution of the injunction pending an appeal. Prior to the ruling, 17 states, plus the District of Columbia, had legalized same-sex marriage in the US.
