I can't believe I'm the first one here writing about this:
Today, U.S. District Judge Arenda Wright Allen ruled that Virginia’s ban on marriage for lesbian and gay couples is unconstitutional in the case Bostic v. McDonnell brought by the American Foundation for Equal Rights (AFER). Her ruling is stayed pending appeal, meaning marriages will not occur immediately in the commonwealth.More over the Squiggle Of Doom.
Virginia has some pretty odious anti-gay laws. Aside from their law banning same-sex marriage, the constitution also bans the State and any political subdivision of the state from recognizing any form of civil union. Washington Post columnist Jonathan Rauch even argues that the Constitution forbids two people from entering into a contract if they're gay. Needless to say, the State Legislature spent an awful lot of time making damn sure gays and lesbians wouldn't get married in Virginia.
As was the case in Utah, their efforts now seem for naught. Of course, that depends on how the appeals go.
