RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- A federal appeals court is postponing oral arguments challenging Nevada's gay marriage ban.
Although a date was not given for a hearing, an order was issued on Monday, rescheduling the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals hearing in San Francisco.
Eight gay couples are challenging Nevada's constitutional amendment passed by voters in 2002. The amendment defines marriage as a union between a man and a woman. A federal judge in Reno upheld the law in 2012, prompting the appeal.
