THURSDAY: Tenth Circuit To Hear Oral Arguments In Oklahoma Marriage Suit

Freedom Oklahoma writes:
On Thursday, April 17 at 10am MT, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit will hear oral arguments in Bishop v. Smith, the landmark case that seeks the freedom to marry for same-sex couples in Oklahoma. In January 2014, a federal judge struck down Oklahoma’s ban on marriage for same-sex couples, and the state has appealed the ruling to the 10th Circuit. This case, which had been waiting for its day in court for nearly a decade, is historic — and it could very well be what brings the freedom to marry not just to Oklahoma but to every state in the 10th Circuit (including Colorado, Kansas, Utah and Wyoming) and possibly the nation, should it face consideration by the U.S. Supreme Court.
