Appeals Court Issues Temporary Stay In Michigan Gay Marriage Ruling

(Detroit, MI) -- A federal appeals court is putting a temporary stop to same-sex marriages in Michigan. The U.S Appeals Court for the Sixth Circuit issued a temporary stay on the ruling yesterday that overturned the state's ban on same-sex marriage and adoption. Dozens of marriage licenses were issued today as a number of county clerks offices opened outside normal business hours. The stay leaves couples married today in a state of legal limbo, uncertain if they have the same rights as other married couples.
