Lawyers for a couple challenging Oklahoma's gay marriage ban, and the clerk who refused to grant them a license, are headed to a federal appeals court with a rare opportunity.
Judges at the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver heard arguments last week about Utah's gay-marriage ban, and will take up the Oklahoma case Thursday.
That gave the Oklahoma legal teams on both sides a chance to fine-tune their arguments based on what they heard last week.
Attorneys defending the ban say they were encouraged by the judges' tough questions.
