Fourth Circuit overturns Virginia same-sex marriage ban

The Fourth Circuit today announced its decision (2-1; Judge Floyd wrote the majority opinion) in Bostic v. Schaefer (No. 14-1167) affirming the district court for the Eastern District of Virginia in holding that Virginia’s ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional under the 14th Amendment. The Court did not stay its judgment. Judge Niemeyer wrote a dissent.
