Gay Unions Move Ahead


RICHMOND, Va. - The U.S. appeals court that last month struck down Virginia's ban on same-sex unions refused Wednesday to delay the effects of its ruling.

State officials said that unless the U.S. Supreme Court interceded, Virginia counties could begin issuing marriage licenses to gay couples next week.
