Michigan won't recognize gay marriage benefits, pending appeal

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 03/27/2014 - 02:43
(Reuters) - Same-sex marriages performed last week, after a federal judge overturned Michigan's ban on gay marriage, were valid but the benefits conferred have been suspended as the ruling has been stayed, pending an appeal, Governor Rick Snyder said Wednesday. Clerks in four Michigan counties issued hundreds of marriage licenses to same-sex couples on Saturday after a federal judge in Detroit ruled that the state's ban on gay marriage adopted by voters in 2004 violated the U.S. Constitution. Michigan's attorney general, Bill Schuette, appealed the ruling to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, which issued a stay on the decision Saturday afternoon and has extended the stay until the court rules on his appeal. Snyder said the same-sex unions performed from the time of U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman's ruling until the stay was granted on Saturday were valid when entered into.
