Courts - "Federal judge strikes down Michigan ban on same-sex marriage"
Updating this ILB post from March 8th headed "Courts - Long same-sex marriage trial in Michigan ended Friday," the WSJ has just reported "Federal judge strikes down Michigan ban on same-sex marriage."
[More] From a news release from the Mich. AG [h/t @AppellateDaily] : "U.S. District Court Judge Bernard A. Friedman ruled against the Michigan Constitution in DeBoer v. Snyder ... In contrast with other federal judges handling similar cases across the country, Judge Friedman did not stay his ruling pending the outcome of appeal."
[ILB: However, Nevada and Kentucky did not stay until later]
