gay_marriage_81102178_620x350A federal judge has ruled Virginia’s gay marriage ban is unconstitutional.

The ruling was announced late Thursday evening. The order released around 10 p.m. stated the following:

“The Court finds Va. Const. Art. I, § 15-A, Va. Code §§ 20-45.2, 20-45.3, and any other Virginia law that bars same-sex marriage or prohibits Virginia’s recognition of lawful same-sex marriages from other jurisdictions unconstitutional. These laws deny Plaintiffs their rights to due process and equal protection guaranteed under the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution.”
