Court of Appeals Upholds Same Sex Benefits

by
Court of Appeals
Court of Appeals

LANSING, MI (WTVB) - The Michigan Court of Appeals ruled today in favor of the Civil Service Commission's 2011 decision to extend health benefits to some eligible, unrelated co-residents of state employees, including same-sex partners. The Attorney General's Office had challenged the decision, arguing that it violated the state's prohibition against recognizing any agreement other than "the union of one man and one woman in marriage" as a marriage. The AG also alleged that the health benefits extension violated a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that certain “domestic partnership policies” explicitly intended to provide benefits for same-sex partners went against the Marriage Amendment
