Next week, plaintiffs challenging Nevada and Idaho’s marriage bans will make their way to the San Francisco-based 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, just one step below the U.S. Supreme Court.
And since Arizona falls under the jurisdiction of the 9th Circuit, the court’s ruling in the Nevada and Idaho cases could pave the way for marriage equality in Arizona.
Now help us spread the word! We’ve created an infographic explaining what’s at stake at the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals and how it could impact winning marriage in Arizona. Click here to share it with your family and friends.
If the 9th Circuit rules in favor of the freedom to marry, a binding precedent would be set across the 9th Circuit, and it’s very likely that judges evaluating the constitutionality of Arizona’s marriage ban would apply that precedent in favor of marriage right here in the Grand Canyon State.
As we keep our eyes on Arizona’s own marriage cases, it’s important that we prepare for a big moment for marriage at the 9th Circuit. With just days to go before oral arguments begin in these related marriage cases in Nevada and Idaho, help us reach as many people as possible by spreading the word.
