VA Supreme Court justice reviewing stay of gay marriage ruling

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

 

Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts is reviewing an emergency appeal of the same-sex marriage ruling just issued in Virginia.

Roberts can either consider the request on his own or ask the full court to decide.

Earlier this week, a Federal Appeals ruling decided not to delay striking down the state's gay marriage ban. If the court doesn't act, Virginia will legalize gay marriage and recognizes same-sex unions from other states on August 21 at 8 a.m.
