Virginia gay marriage lawsuit turns to a class action

Posted:

RICHMOND (WVVA) -- A federal judge in Virginia certifies a lawsuit challenging the state's ban on gay marriage as a class action. 

This means, plaintiffs in a case in Harrisonburg will be representing all same sex couples who would like to be married and those who have already been married under other jurisdictions. 

There are at least 15,000 same-sex marriage households expected to exist in Virginia already.
