Schuette wants appeals judge to hear same-sex marriage case

LANSING (WKZO) -- Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette is calling for a single "en banc" hearing by all 15 judges on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit on the state’s gay marriage ban case. Schuette filed a petition with the appeals court on Friday in an attempt to expedite the case, and notes the option has been granted previously.

The attorney general is defending the state’s voter-approved ban on same-sex marriages, which was overturned by a federal judge in Detroit in March. The federal appeals court issued a stay the next day, putting over 300 couples who were able to get married in legal limbo until a final decision is made.
