ACLU lawsuit challenges marriage in Virginia

ACLU: Today we filed another marriage case, this time on the solidly southern soil of Virginia. The case is a joint venture among the ACLU, the ACLU of Virginia, and Lambda Legal on behalf of two lesbian couples who represent a class of same-sex couples who want to marry in Virginia or who are already married elsewhere and want Virginia to respect their marriages. We’re hoping to broaden the conversation around the freedom to marry and to bring compelling stories to the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, where we have high hopes for a fair hearing down the road.
