same sex marriage
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has extended federal recognition to the Michigan marriages of about 300 same-sex couples.
Six state Democrats in Michigan’s congressional delegation are asking U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to recognize more than 300 same-sex marriages performed last weekend.
Michigan won’t recognize more than 300 marriages performed last weekend before a court halted a decision that opened the door to gay nuptials,
Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder is nearing a decision on the status of same-sex marriages conducted after a judge struck down the state’s gay marriage ban but before the ruling was halted.
Rick Snyder hasn’t said a word about it since the state’s gay marriage ban was struck down last Friday.
The state hopes to at least get a stay until Friday so it can go to the Supreme Court.
Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette officially announced his intention to run for another term as the state’s attorney general.
Gov. Snyder’s office says they’re waiting to see what the 6th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals decides.
With a stay issued by the U.S. Sixth Circuit of Appeals in Michigans’ same sex marriage case, the question for many is whether the marriages performed on Saturday will remain legally binding.
The 6th Circuit Court of Appeals granted a stay until Wednesday at the request of State Attorney General, Bill Schuette.
