A same-sex divorce case filed in Roane County Circuit Court last year was working its way through the appeals process when the U.S. Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage across the country. Now the Tennessee Court of Appeals has ordered the parties to file briefs by July 10 on how that decision impacts the case, Roane County News reports. The state, which originally opposed the divorce, has indicated it likely will drop its objections since it now must recognize the marriage, which had been performed in Iowa.
