This could be the case that overturns same-sex marriage bans across the country once and for all

April DeBoer and Jayne Rowse are fighting to overturn Michigan’s same-sex marriage ban, a law passed in 2004 which now is supported by less than half of our state’s residents. What started as a challenge to Michigan’s adoption laws, Jayne and April’s case was broadened at the suggestion of federal Judge Bernard Friedman to challenge the ban on marriage equality. The case goes to court on February 25th, 2014.
This case will very likely go to the U.S. Supreme Court. Knowing this, the legal team that is handling this case has assembled an incredible list of nationally-renowned experts to give testimony. The foundation they build during this case will lay the groundwork for what comes afterwards so mounting a solid case is essential.
It’s also very expensive. None of the lawyers who are working on the case have received a dime for their work. In addition, hiring expert witnesses of this caliber is very expensive. While marriage equality legal cases in other states have received millions of dollars in support, this case has not received the same level of financial support.
