(Reuters) - The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit struck down Virginia's constitutional ban on same-sex marriage on Monday.

The court agreed with a lower federal court ruling striking down the ban. The appeals court ruled that "the fundamental right to marriage includes a right to same-sex marriage and that therefore Virginia's marriage laws must be reviewed under strict scrutiny."
