Virginia Judge Strikes Down Gay Marriage Ban
Published February 14th, 2014
A judge struck down Virginia's ban on same-sex marriage.
US District Judge Arenda Wright Allen said the ban is unconstitutional.
She said it denies equal protection guaranteed under the 14th amendment.
The decision has been stayed pending appeal, so same-sex marriages won't begin right away.
The commonwealth passed the ban in 2006.
