ACLU Plans Lawsuit to Force Michigan to Recognize 300 Same-Sex Marriages

Details of the lawsuit will be announced at a Monday afternoon news conference.

The American Civil Liberties Union says it will file a lawsuit to require Michigan to recognize about 300 same-sex marriages performed last month after U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman's historic ruling declaring gay marriage legal.

The American Civil Liberties Union plans to file a lawsuit to require Michigan to recognize the marriages of couples who wed during the brief period that same-sex marriage was legal in the state.

U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman ruled March 21 that Michigan’s voter-backed ban on same-sex marriage was unconstitutional. Gov. Rick Snyder said the marriages of about 300 couples who married are legal, but the state won’t recognize them because the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has issued a stay on Friedman’s ruling pending an appeal.

The ACLU said it will share details of its planned lawsuit at a news conference in Detroit Monday afternoon, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Bull pucky Dale. God did not write the Bible and to tell people that is a flat out lie. Prove it scientifically for the entire world, we'll be waiting. Don't be shocked if a thunder bolt hits you in the rear end either, that's about more likely to happen then you proving beyond a reasonable doubt that God himself authored your version of the Bible. Personally I don't have a copy of the bible by Dale Murrish, so don't tell me what week it is, you pass judgment every week, so what's new?

Dale B. here's a hanky, go boohoo to someone on Breitbart or Redstate. Nothing like listening to a whiney right winger complain about their First Amendment rights being taking away , whilst whining at the same time. The irony!

Dale Behler: My bad.The post of mine of 6:15 pm today was directed towards Dale M. Who are you? And why should I consider you?

Also, if there has been an improvement in discourse perhaps it is because Dale M has refrained from some of his more colorful metaphors when he demeans the heartfelt religious convictions of other people because they might be slightly different than his. He has been been much more indirect lately.

Dale B: you have put forward an enormous amount of vitriol toward "liberals" whoever you think they are, and claim you are being attacked because people disagree with you. Maybe you need to check yourself when you speak of hate mongers.
