Wednesday, the largest attack against the ban on equal marriage will take place in Cincinnati.

Indeed, until now Ohio, Kentucky, Michigan and Tennessee fought separately but change tactics, 4 states unite for equality.

"Putting all of the arguments on the same day back-to-back is certainly unusual and actually a very good move," said Al Gerhardstein, the lawyer heading the challenge to Ohio's same-sex marriage ban.

"That way the panel gets the benefit of all the arguments at once, giving them a chance at harmonizing the law in this area."

Thus as early as Wednesday, the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals will hear the case of 4 states.

"This is a seminal moment in all of our nation's LGBT movements," said Chris Hartman, director of the Fairness Campaign of Kentucky.
