Michigan gay marriage ban remains in place after Appeals Court ruling

CINCINNATI, OH (WTVB) - The temporary judicial stop to gay marriages in Michigan will now continue indefinitely.  A majority of a three-judge panel on the Sixth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals yesterday extended its stay on U.S. District Court Judge Bernard Friedman's ruling that resulted in a couple hundred same-sex marriages last Saturday. 

Michigan Governor Rick Snyder says the effort in court to maintain a 2004 ban on gay marriage is not up to him.  Friedman found Michigan's amendment unconstitutional after a two-week trial, but the Cincinnati-based higher court cited an injunction in a similar Utah case to institute a hold on matters.
