The legal fight over Oklahoma’s ban on same-sex marriage moves to a critical stage this week.

Thursday a federal appeals court will look into whether a U.S. district judge in Tulsa correctly found the ban unconstitutional.

Earlier this year, the Tenth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals announced they moved

Oklahoma’s same-sex marriage appeal case to the front of the line.

The judges who will hear our state’s appeal will also hear another appeal from Utah.

Back in January a federal judge struck down laws banning same-sex marriage in both states, claiming the ban was also unconstitutional.

We’re told right now there is no deadline for when a decision will be announced.
