U.S. Supreme Court to hear Michigan marriage equality case

I concluded yesterday's entry by writing "[t]he sooner the Supreme Court rules on this case, the better." I got my wish, as WXYZ reports Supreme Court decides to take up the same-sex marriage cases.

In the Detroit Free Press, plaintiff's attorney Dana Nessel described her hopes (and mine) about the outcome of the case.
"If you are a person that is affected by these laws that discriminate against same-sex couples and their families -- if you are April and Jayne and their children -- this cannot possibly come soon enough," said Nessel, who believes the same-sex marriage issue "be decided once and for all, and that it apply to all 50 states of the union.
Good luck, and skillful arguing before the bench.
