Marriage case hearing postponed in Virginia

One of the most severe snow storms in a decade has swept through the South, dumping almost 10 inches of snow in southeast Virginia and creating dangerous conditions for an area that rarely sees such inclement precipitation.

Because of the weather, the federal district court announced that it will be closed tomorrow. AFER attorneys Ted Olson and David Boies were scheduled to appear before the court to argue that the state’s ban on marriage for gay and lesbian couples is unconstitutional.

The Court will soon reschedule oral argument for a later date.
