Judge strikes down Michigan's Marriage Amendment
LANSING, Mich. -- A federal judge struck down the Marriage Amendment to the Michigan Constitution that was approved by voters in 2004. Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette filed an emergency request of a stay and appeal of the ruling.
U.S. District Court Judge Bernard A. Friedman ruled against the Michigan Constitution in the case DeBoer v. Snyder on Friday after a two week trial.
Friedman did not stay his ruling pending the outcome of an appeal.
