Question about the Loving vs. Virginia case. When the Lovings appealed and accused the State of Virgina of violating their federally protected constitutional rights under the 14th amendment, Virginia could have invoked an earlier decision of the US Supreme Court itself authorizing the States to prohibit interracial marriages. Was Virgina able to invoke such a Supreme Court precedent?
