Professor Larry Dubin commented in the Detroit News recently that the ruling of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in the DeBoer case, upholding MIchigan's gay marriage ban in a 2 -1 split decision by the panel, is an attractive case for the U.S. Supreme Court to review on appeal. "It is the only circuit that held that voters in a state can deny the right to marriage to same-sex couples. There also is a good record that was made at trial before Judge Friedman," Dubin said. "It seems logical that the Court will take this case now that there is a division among the federal circuit courts."
