When the U.S. Supreme Court delivered major victories to proponents of same-sex marriage in two cases last June, it declined to rule on whether states may constitutionally ban the unions. That question is now working its way through the state courts via 47 federal and state cases challenging the constitutionality of same-sex marriage bans in the 24 states that have them, according to The Washington Post.
Two cases in Virginia will be among the most closely watched: One was ruled a class action on Friday, and the other has a hearing tomorrow.
