LANSING, MI – Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette today made the following statement in response to the United States Supreme Court granting certiorari to take up the case of DeBoer v. Snyder:
“This case involves people of good will, sincerely motivated, on both sides. All of Michigan’s voters, as well as the citizens of our nation, will be well served by the court’s decision to decide this case and resolve such an important issue.
“Therefore, I am pleased that the Supreme Court has chosen to review this case, so that important issues involving the fundamental institution of marriage, our Constitution and the rights of voters will be decided.
“Court cases, by their very nature, create an adversarial atmosphere between those representing the two sides of an argument. But in a democracy, reasonable people can disagree without being disagreeable.”
