WASHINGTON — After earlier scheduling and then canceling appellate arguments on the constitutionality of the same-sex marriage bans in Indiana and Wisconsin, the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday rescheduled the arguments for Aug. 26.

The appeals court also denied the requests made by both states' officials for the court to hear the cases en banc — or, by the whole court — initially, as opposed to by a three-judge panel of the judges from the court, as is the ordinary practice.
