UPDATE: Michigan's 1st gay marriage license issued

MASON, Mich. (AP) - A county clerk in central Michigan has issued the state's first marriage license for a same-sex-couple and married them this morning.
Glenna DeJong and Marsha Caspar were married a day after Michigan's ban on gay marriage was scratched from the state constitution by a federal judge.
Clerks in at least three of Michigan's 83 counties have said they'll start granting marriage licenses to same-sex-couples today.
Attorney General Bill Schuette asked a higher court Friday to freeze the landmark ruling while an appeal is pursued.
It was not known when the federal appeals court in Cincinnati would respond.
The ban was approved by voters by a landslide in 2004.
