An order was released Tuesday that says the United States 10th Circuit Court of Appeals will review a decision that defeats the constitutional ban on gay marriage in the state of Oklahoma, according to The Denver Post. The order said that the court will review the case on an expedited basis.

The Oklahoma appeal will be handled by a panel of three judges. It is the same panel of judges that will hear the case involving the Utah federal court ruling for gay marriage. The panel has yet to be chosen.

The briefs for each case will be filed separately and oral arguments will also be separate from each case. The order said that the amicus briefs can be filed jointly.

On December 20, U.S. District Judge Robert Shelby issued a ruling that said the 2004 ban on same-sex marriage in Utah violated the constitutional rights of lesbian and gay couples. In the Utah case, the National Center for Lesbian Rights joined a law firm from Salt Lake City to act as co-counsel.

On January 17, U.S. District Judge Terence Kern shot down the gay marriage ban in Oklahoma.
