DETROIT (AP) - Attorneys who persuaded a judge to overturn Michigan's ban on gay marriage are opposing the state's request to have an entire appeals court take the case. They say the Cincinnati-based court should stick to its practice of assigning cases to a three-judge panel. A Detroit federal judge in March threw out Michigan's ban on gay marriage.

DETROIT (AP) - Organizers are set to announce details about this year's gay pride festival in Detroit. Equality Michigan today plans to reveal the entertainment lineup and other specifics related to the Motor City Pride event. Motor City Pride bills itself as Michigan's largest gathering that celebrates the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community.

DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) - A Michigan civil rights organization has developed what it's calling the first mobile app to report discrimination, ethnic harassment and other forms of bigotry. The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee says the app provides information about citizens' legal rights. Officials say it commemorates the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Department of Natural Resources has developed a program to help middle schoolers learn about Michigan's plants and animals by focusing on a year in the life of a bear. Participating students will learn about the life cycle of the Michigan black bear. Classes will be able to use data points from a radio-collared bear to track its seasonal movements.
