A federal appeals court has scheduled oral arguments in gay marriage fights in Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky and Tennessee.
The Cincinnati-based 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will hear arguments Aug. 6 on whether to uphold gay marriage victories in the four states it oversees.
The 6th Circuit is the third federal appeals court to weigh challenges to state gay marriage bans.
Arguments were held in the 4th Circuit in Virginia in May and the 10th Circuit in Denver in April. Rulings are expected soon.
More than a dozen federal and state judges have struck down part or all of state-level bans in recent months. No rulings have gone the other way.
