According to Fox News, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has extended federal recognition to the Michigan marriages of around 300 same-sex couples from last weekend. The marriages were performed before a federal appeals court put a hold in place. Holder’s actions enables the government to extend federal benefits to the couples. The move comes just two days after Michigan Governor Rick Snyder said the marriages are legal, but won’t be recognized until the the appeals court upholds Judge Bernard Friedman’s ruling from last week that struck down the ban on same-sex marriage in Michigan.
