Court urged to end delay on gay marriages in West Virginia

HUNTINGTON, West Virginia — Following Monday’s ruling from the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals striking down Virginia’s ban on marriage for same-sex couples, Lambda Legal today filed a motion asking the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia to lift a stay it had entered pending the Fourth Circuit’s decision and enter judgment in Lambda Legal’s case on behalf of three same-sex couples seeking the freedom to marry in West Virginia.

Lambda Legal is also asking the Court to deny a motion filed Tuesday by the State of West Virginia to extend the stay.

Set in Berlin, this psychedelic thriller directed by Patrick Schuckmann and Stefan Westerwelle follows the story of a young tourist from Madrid, Spain who is trying to get over the painful breakup with his boyfriend.
