3….2…..1…..Marriage Equality in Virginia
The Supreme Court of the United States today declined to hear multiple cases seeking certiorari related to the issue of Same Sex Marriage.
Wisconsin, the state where I grew up, is front and center in the decision, as are Indiana (where I clerked on the Supreme Court of Indiana), Oklahoma and Utah. The fifth state whose appeal will not be heard is Virginia – where many of our attorneys practice.
The Commonwealth of Virginia immediately (right now!) begins recognizing marriages performed in other jurisdictions, and will move forward with allowing same-sex marriage promptly.
Kuder, Smollar, Friedman & Mihalik, P.C., is excited to welcome marriage equality to the Commonwealth of Virginia.
