Atty. General Cuccinelli Asks Court Justices to Stay Anti-Sodomy Ruling


July 29, 2013

Attorney General and Republican gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli is asking the US Supreme Court to stay a lower court's ruling, striking down the Commonwealth's anti-sodomy law.

The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals declared Virginia's law against oral and anal sex unconstitutional in March. Attorney General Cuccinelli appealed the panel's 2-1 ruling to the Supreme Court in June.

Chief Justice John Roberts has asked the other side for a response by next Monday.
