LUDINGTON — Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette will be at House of Flavors Restaurant today for a campaign kick-off. The Republican AG has recently made national news for filing an appeal of last week’s decision by a federal judge to overturn Michigan’s same-sex marriage ban, resulting in a stay in the decision. On Tuesday the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals extended the stay by a 2-1 ruling, meaning the case will make its way through the appellate court and likely to the U.S. Supreme Court, a decision that will likely be made in the summer of 2015 at the earliest.

Locally, Schuette has made news by his office taking the lead in the prosecution in the murder case against Sean Michael Phillips, the man accused of murdering his 4-month-old daughter, Katherine “Baby Kate” Phillips in June 2011. Phillips is currently serving a prison sentence for the unlawful imprisonment of the baby. He is scheduled to appear in front of Judge Peter Wadel in Mason County’s 79th District Court on April 3 and 4 for a preliminary examination.

The campaign kick-off program begins at noon at House of Flavors, 402 W. Ludington Ave.
