The Tenth Circuit has issued an order setting oral arguments in the Utah and Oklahoma same-sex marriage cases a week apart, in April. The arguments will be heard in a special session, since the only times the Tenth Circuit had previously set aside for arguments were in March and May.
The cases were put on an expedited track, to be heard by the same panel, earlier this week.
Here’s a copy of the orders, via Kathleen Perrin: Utah is here. Oklahoma is here.
