Georgia Supreme Court Asked to Expedite Hearing on Reinstating Georgia’s Constitutional Ban on Gay Marriage

The Georgia Attorney General has asked the state supreme court to expedite a hearing on reinstating Georgia's constitutional ban on gay marriage, which was struck down earlier this month.  The Governor, Sonny Perdue, has said that he will convene a special session of the General Assembly August 9 if the state supreme court refuses to reverse the lower court ruling.  Source.  Nancy Badertscher, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, ajc.com.
