Tenth Circuit of Appeals sets date for oral arguments for Utah gay marriage appeal

The Salt Lake Tribune is reporting that April 10th will be the day the 10th Circuit of Appeals will hear oral arguments on marriage equality in Utah:

On Wednesday, the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals announced oral arguments in the state’s appeal will take place April 10.

The case will be decided by a panel of three judges, who will be randomly assigned about 10 days before the hearing.

The 10th Circuit has agreed to let the same panel handle an appeal from Oklahoma, where a lower court struck down a similar ban on same-sex marriage.

The court also will allow amicus briefs to be filed jointly in the Utah and Oklahoma cases.
