Court Ruling May Clear Way for Gay Marriage in NC
The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond ruled Moday that Virginia's same-sex marriage ban is unconstitutional, a decision that could overturn Amendment One in North Carolina. Immediately following the ruling, NC Attorney General Roy Cooper announced the state would drop its opposition to lawsuits challenging the constitutionality of the statewide ban.
David Hurand spoke with The Executive Director of the Campaign for Southern Equality, Reverend Jasmin-Beach Ferrara and Buncombe County Register of Deeds Drew Reisinger about the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals’ decision and Attorney General Roy Coopers’ response.
