Equality Michigan is hoping for what could be a historic day for their state. U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman is expected to hear arguments, and possibly issue a ruling, tomorrow on whether Michigan’s 2004 ban marriage equality violates the U.S. Constitution. He also may decide whether the state’s ban on same-sex adoption is constitutional.
Should he lift the ban on same-sex marriage and decline to issue a stay while it’s being appealed, same-sex marriage would be legal in Michigan until a higher court overturned it. Dozens, and perhaps hundreds, of same-sex couples are preparing to tie the knot Wednesday afternoon, according to organizers in the gay and lesbian communities.
