Gay Marriage Ban in Virginia Struck Down

"A federal judge struck down Virginia's same-sex marriage ban, finding that it violates the equal protection clause under the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution," the Richmond Times Dispatch reports.

New York Times: "The ruling, which overturned a constitutional amendment adopted by Virginia voters in 2006 as well as previous laws, also said that Virginia must respect same-sex marriages that were carried out legally in other states."
