Same Sex Marriages Put on Hold As Temporary Stay is GrantedBTLWeddingExpo_144x360

(Equality Michigan Press Release, March 21, 2014)

The U.S. Appeals Court for the Sixth Circuit has issued a temporary stay in the DeBoer v. Snyder marriage equality case until Wednesday.

Earlier Saturday, the appeals court issued a one-page order directing the attorneys for the DeBoer-Rowse family to respond to Attorney General Bill Schuette’s request for an emergency stay by noon Tuesday.

That means that same-sex marriages in Michigan HAVE BEEN HALTED until the U.S. Appeals Court for the Sixth Circuit issues a final ruling on the motion for a stay after reviewing the response from the DeBoer-Rowse’s legal team – probably by close of business on Wednesday.
