The second decision involved
dismissing an appeal concerning
Proposition 8, an amendment to
the California constitution banning
same-sex marriages in that state. The
court's refusal to hear the case means
that previous state and federal rul-
ings allowing same-sex marriage in
California will be upheld.
Minutes after the opinions were
announced, responses began rever-
berating across the country, including
a Tweet from President Obama, who
received the news en route to Africa
aboard Air Force One:
Today's DOMA ruling is a historic
step forward for #MarriageEquality.
#LovelsLove.
Democratic U.S. Sen. Carl Levin
called the decisions "victories for equal-
ity and for simple human dignity:'
State Rep. Ellen
Cogen Lipton
(D-Huntington
Woods) said she
was "pleasantly sur-
prised" at the news
and believes the rul-
ings will eventually
affect lawmakers
State Rep.
in Michigan, where
Ellen Cogen
same-sex marriage
Lipton
is not recognized.

"The rulings may give pause to
groups or individuals who want to
promote agendas not in keeping with
the spirit of the Supreme Court deci-
sions:' said Lipton. "Those who really
want to push an anti-equality agenda
will have to think twice."
Kary L. Moss, executive direc-
tor of ACLU of Michigan, praised
the opinions, stating that DOMA
and Proposition 8 violated the
Constitution by treating gay and les-
bian couples as second-class citizens.
"The ACLU has been working for
decades to secure the freedom to
marry across the country. Today, we
renew our commitment to this effort.
We will work tirelessly to ensure that
same-sex couples can legally marry in
any state."
In a statement from the National
Council of Jewish Women, the orga-
nization said it hoped the decision
"will inspire more states to join the
growing number of marriage equality
states:'
Micki Grossman of Farmington
Hills is among those who rejoiced
over the rulings, but she admits
her attitude has changed signifi-
cantly since 2000, when her son, Ross
Grossman, and his partner, Alan
Ellias, had a commitment ceremony
