DETROIT — Oral arguments have been officially scheduled by a federal appeals court about Michigan's dispute over gay marriage.

A court filing Monday says that arguments are planned for Aug. 6 before a three-judge panel at the Cincinnati-based court. The filing notes, however, that the arguments could be canceled if the judges decide briefs and the court record are enough for a decision.

More than 300 same-sex couples were married in March after a Detroit federal judge said Michigan's 2004 voter-approved ban on gay marriage is unconstitutional. The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals earlier suspended the decision while the appeal is pending.
