Oklahoma Marriage Equality Case in Legal LimboThe Oklahoma marriage equality movement got a shot in the arm when a group of attorneys announced their support.

The Republic reports:

A group of about 85 attorneys from across Oklahoma are joining a coalition in support of gay marriage in the state and the country. The group Oklahoma Lawyers for Marriage is launching its website on Monday and supports the idea that all marriages should be legally recognized. One of the attorneys is Democratic state Rep. Emily Virgin of Norman who says she’s joining the coalition because she believes marriage equality is “a matter of fairness under the law.”

Oklahoma’s marriage equality lawsuit is currently awaiting resolution at the tenth circuit.
