Ann Arbor City Council To Consider Resolution Urging State Drop Appeals To Same-Sex Marriage Ruling

Apr 7, 2014

Ann Arbor City Council is set to ask state officials to drop appeals to the court ruling that briefly allowed same-sex marriages to take place.  Council tonight will consider a resolution urging Governor Rick Snyder and Attorney General Bill Schuette to suspend efforts to contest Judge Bernard Friedman’s ruling.

74 Washtenaw County same-sex couples wed the day following Friedman’s ruling.  About 300 same-sex couples across the state married, but Michigan isn’t recognizing their marriages.  

Ypsilanti City Council has already passed a similar resolution.
