ACLU files same-sex marriage lawsuit

DETROIT (WKZO) -- The American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan has a new lawsuit on regarding the state's same-sex marriages.

The ACLU has filed a lawsuit on behalf of the roughly 300 couples who were able to get married in March before the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals issued a stay and put the decision of a federal judge in Detroit on hold. The lawsuit seeks to ensure the marriages are recognized by the state, as the federal government has already announced the couples are entitled to federal marriage benefits.

It could be months before the federal appeals court rules on the decision by Judge Bernard Friedman, and after that whichever side loses is expected to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.
