Implications for Georgia from Gay Marriage Rulings in Texas & Virginia?
In the last two weeks of February, 2014, Federal district judges threw out constitutional bans on gay marriage in two states: Virginia and Texas.
Georgia also has a gay marriage ban in its state constitution.
To find out whether the rulings in Virginia and Texas have any implications for Georgia, WABE's Denis O'Hayer spoke with Robert Schapiro, Dean and Asa Griggs Candler Professor of Law at the Emory University Law School.
In the expanded version, Dean Schapiro also looked at the arguments over "religious freedom" bills that have been proposed in Georgia and several other states, and vetoed in Arizona.
