CINCINNATI (WJBK) - Hundreds of people are gathering in Cincinnati, Ohio right now in support of same-sex marriage.

Michigan's ban on gay marriage, among other states', is being heard in the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Wednesday. A three-judge panel will hear six cases also stemming from three other states, Tennessee, Kentucky and Ohio.

This hearing is unprecedented with the panel assembling all of the cases related to same-sex marriage at once.

This is considered a conservative court, but 29 other courts across the country have ruled in favor of same-sex marriage.

Fox 2's Amy Lange is at the courthouse. You can watch her report from Fox 2 News Live at 11 in the video player above.

She reports several activists are outside the courthouse right now and, at 12:30 p.m., the Archdiocese is planning a protest outside the courthouse.

You will hear the latest information tonight on Fox 2 News beginning at 5 p.m. as no electronic devices are allowed inside the courtroom.
