The Supreme Court indicated that it will consider whether to grant review of appeals in Bostic v. Schaefer, the federal constitutional challenge to Virginia’s discriminatory Marriage Amendment.  The Bostic case, along with four other cases challenging marriage bans in Utah, Oklahoma, Wisconsin, and Indiana will be considered at the Justices’ private conference scheduled for September 29. “Gay and lesbian couples in Virginia should not have to wait another day to enjoy their right to marry,” said AFER Executive Director, Adam Umhoefer. “The distribution of our case for the Court’s consideration brings us one step closer to our mission of marriage equality for all Americans. Our Constitution’s guarantee of liberty and equality soon will be realized for all loving and committed couples, no matter what state they reside in.”

The Court is expected to release an Orders List on October 6, 2014, that will indicate which – if any – marriage equality case or cases it will consider for its 2014-2015 term. [afer]
