When the Supremes had ruled that Michigan voters were allowed to ban affirmative action I wrote about whether Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette would use that same argument -- voters get to decide -- in the same-sex marriage case. One news commentator took one side, one took the other. The debate is over. Schuette has filed a brief in the marriage case making that exact claim. He says it's more important to honor voters wishes than allow gay couples to marry.
Several other states are factoring that affirmative action ruling into their same-sex marriage cases.
