Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli has lost his bid to delay a lower court ruling that struck down Virginia's anti-sodomy law while the U.S. Supreme Court considers whether to hear his appeal.
Chief Justice John Roberts on Friday denied the request for a stay from Cuccinelli's office.
In March, a divided three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond declared the Commonwealth's law against oral and anal sex unconstitutional.
Cuccinelli appealed the ruling in June, and later asked the justices to issue the stay.
