Pluta says Michigan's case is unique as it directly challenges the State of Michigan's ban on gay marriage rather than approach the issue obliquely.

Marriage equality supporters in Michigan are closely watching events unfold today in Cincinnati. That's where the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals will hear arguments on the state's ban on same-sex marriage. The court may decide the fate of Michigan's ban as well as those in Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee.

The Michigan Public Radio Network's Rick Pluta has been covering this case. He spoke with Current State from Cincinnati about what this decision could mean for Michigan.
