Michigan judge asked to halt injunction that lets agencies refuse to serve LGBT couples
Emergency motion filed Friday
LANSING, Mich. – Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel is asking a federal judge to halt an injunction that lets religious-based adoption and foster care agencies refuse to serve LGBT couples.
The Democrat announced Friday that she filed an emergency motion for a stay.
She contends U.S. District Judge Robert Jonker misinterpreted a 2015 law that allows child-placing agencies to turn away prospective families in private cases for religious reasons, but not when they are placing state-supervised children.
