Marriage bans

8.6.14:  Circuit courts to decide on marriage cases

 

Challenges to same-sex marriage bans in 4 states are being argued today in Cincinnati.

 

A 3-judge panel will consider 6 cases from Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, and Tennessee.

 

The circuit courts are the last step before the U.S. Supreme Court.

 

There has been an 8-month streak of federal rulings as supporters work to uphold the definition of marriage as between one man and one woman.
