Michigan Same Sex Marriage Case Not Yet Heard by SCOTUS, Jan. 16 Possible

Michigan Same Sex Marriage Case Not Yet Heard by SCOTUS, Jan. 16 Possiblemodern natural baby inprogress

(Crystal A. Proxmire, Jan. 12, 2015)

The Supreme Court has bumped up the date for all cases from the Sixth Circuit, including the case of the Hazel Park lesbian couple fighting for equal access to marriage. According to Dana Nessel, the case is now listed for Jan. 16.  There are three other cases regarding same-sex marriage that could also possibly be heard.

The court did decline hearing a case from Louisiana where couples had sued to challenge the state’s ban on same-sex marriage, according to SCOTUS blog. Experts were not surprised that the Louisanna case was not heard, as the Plaintiffs had not yet gotten a ruling from the Circuit Court.

In DeBoer v. Snyder, April DeBoer and Jayne Rowse sued the State of Michigan and Oakland Sahara ad with wineCounty originally for the right to jointly adopt the children they have been raising together. The case evolved into one challenging Michigan’s ban on same-sex marriage. The case has worked its way up to the Supreme Court, and could possibly be the case that brings marriage equality to the entire country.

It was listed for a Jan. 9 hearing, but was moved up to Jan. 12, and now to Jan. 16.

The oc115 has been covering the DeBoer case since its beginning. Here are previous articles:
