Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will officiate at the wedding for two men with Michigan connections.

One, Danny Rubens, a former Ginsburg law clerk, is originally from Ann Arbor, according to his Facebook page. He attended Harvard University Law School. The other person, Danny Grossman, attended the University of Michigan Law School.

The Supreme Court, through its public information officer Kathy Arberg, responded to Deadline Detroit's inquiry by writing: "Justice Ginsburg will not have any comment beyond confirming she will officiate at the wedding of Danny Rubens and Danny Grossman this weekend."

This is reportedly the fourth same-sex couple Justice Ginsburg has married. Retired Justice Sandra Day O'Connor also officiated a same-sex wedding ceremony at the Supreme Court building last October.
