Appeals Court Ruling Could Send Same-Sex Marriage To SCOTUS
The 6th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld several states' same-sex marriage bans, setting up a likely showdown at the Supreme Court.By Steven Sparkman | November 6, 2014
A three-judge panel at the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals bucked the national trend Thursday, upholding four states' bans on same-sex marriage and making it much more likely the issue will finally go to the Supreme Court.
The court heard arguments over same-sex marriage bans in Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee, all of which had been overturned by lower courts.
That puts the 6th Circuit Court in opposition to four other circuit court rulings, all of which had struck down the state bans.
