Michigan same-sex marriage and adoption ban in court this fall

Same-sex marriage

DETROIT, MI (WTVB) -  A federal Judge has set October 1, 2013 for arguments on the constitutional ban on same-sex marriage and gay adoption in Michigan. The suit was filed by two Detroit area nurses, Jayne Rowse and April DeBoer who complained that they were each allowed to adopt children, but prevented from adopting each other’s children as a gay couple.

The case has since been expanded to hear arguments on the state’s voter approved ban on same sex marriage.  A decision will come later this year and appeals could go on for years, regardless of which side wins.
