LANSING, Mich. - Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette today made the following statement in response to the anticipated plaintiffs’ appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court of a ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit upholding the constitutionality of Article 1, Section 25 of the Michigan Constitution in the case DeBoer v. Snyder:

“We have spoken with attorneys for the plaintiffs in DeBoer, and shared that we support a swift appeal to the United States Supreme Court. The Department of Attorney General will also work swiftly so that the nation’s highest court can take it up as quickly as possible. As I have said from the beginning, the sooner the U.S. Supreme Court rules, the better, for Michigan and for the nation.”
