Iowa Supreme Court to hear gay marriage case

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- The national spotlight will be on Iowa Tuesday as a challenge to the state's ban on same-sex marriage goes before the Iowa Supreme Court.

The court will hear oral arguments in a lawsuit from six same-sex couples denied marriage licenses. Last year, a Polk County judge briefly overturned the ban, ruling it violated equal protection. The next day, the judge issued a stay on the ruling until the Iowa Supreme Court could hear the case.
