Snow Delays Virginia Hearing on Challenge to Gay Marriage Ban
The snow storm in the South has postponed the hearing scheduled for Thursday morning in Bostic v. Rainey, the challenge to Virginia's ban on same-sex marriage, AFER reports:
One of the most severe snow storms in a decade has swept through the South, dumping almost 10 inches of snow in southeast Virginia and creating dangerous conditions for an area that rarely sees such inclement precipitation.
Because of the weather, the federal district court announced that it will be closed tomorrow. AFER attorneys Ted Olson and David Boies were scheduled to appear before the court to argue that the state’s ban on marriage for gay and lesbian couples is unconstitutional.
No date has been set for a new hearing.
