Same-sex marriage hearing rescheduled for Tuesday

Posted: Updated:
NORFOLK, VA (WWBT) -

A new hearing date has been scheduled for Tuesday, challenging Virginia's ban on same-sex marriage.

Arguments will begin at 10 a.m. in Norfolk. The hearing was supposed to happen on January 30, but it had to be postponed because of winter weather.

Attorney General Mark Herring is joining the case of two Virginia couples who are suing to overturn the state's ban in federal court. The ban was passed by voters in 2006.

Herring says he will not defend the ban.
