Ruling on Michigan's same-sex marriage ban expected today

DETROIT, MI (WTVB) - There may not necessarily be a rush on the Branch County clerk’s office, but county clerks across the state are preparing for a possible influx of applications for marriage licenses from same sex couples.  A landmark decision on same-sex adoption and gay marriage could be handed down by a federal judge today. 

If U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman does strike down the ban on same-sex marriage, state officials say licenses won’t immediately be available.  Friedman will hear a lawsuit brought by a lesbian couple from Hazel Park, who are challenging the state’s adoption laws and ban on same-sex marriage, which was passed by voters in 2004. 

The hearing will take place this afternoon at the federal courthouse in downtown Detroit.
