The more significant case is DeBoer v Synder which is pending a decision in federal court. This case will overturn our marriage ban in Michigan, and possibly be the case which overturns all bans nationwide.

It's going to be a race to see which appeals court (6th or 9th) rules first and which case(s) get to the SCOTUS. The 9th will almost certainly rule state bans unconstitutional, while the 6th- which covers Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, & Kentucky- will possibly rule against us.

That scenario guarantees the SCOTUS will take one or more of the cases.
