No immediate ruling on Michigan's gay marriage ban

No immediate ruling on Michigan
DETROIT (AP) - A federal judge says he'll wait for important rulings from the U.S. Supreme Court before deciding the future of Michigan's ban on gay marriage.
   
Judge Bernard Friedman heard arguments Thursday on a lesbian couple's challenge to a state law that bars them from jointly adopting children.
   
At the judge's request, the two Detroit-area nurses expanded their case to target the state's 2004 constitutional amendment that defines marriage as between a man and a woman.
   
The judge says Jayne Rowse and April DeBoer made a "compelling" argument that the law violates the U.S. Constitution's Equal Protection Clause. However, he says he wants to wait to rule because a future Supreme Court opinion in a California case could affect the Michigan case.
