Wyoming Activists Monitor Gay Marriage Case

Wednesday Apr 9, 2014

A federal court hearing this week on a challenge to Utah's ban on same-sex marriage will have ramifications for Wyoming and other western states.

The U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver is set to hearing arguments Thursday in a case in which a Utah couple is challenging that state's ban on gay marriage. The court has jurisdiction over other western states including Wyoming.

Jeran Artery is executive director of Wyoming Equality, a statewide group that has been leading the charge to allow gay marriage.

Artery says his group is watching the Utah case closely. He says there's no doubt that eventually a same-sex marriage case will get to the U.S. Supreme Court.
