State of Indiana won’t recognize same-sex marriages

INDIANAPOLIS (July 15, 2014) – A federal appeals court will hear arguments next month concerning a challenge over Indiana’s same-sex marriage ban.

The appeals court in Chicago will hear oral arguments on Aug. 13.

Last month, a federal judge ruled Indiana’s law banning same-sex marriage unconstitutional, setting off a flurry of marriages across the state.

Days later, an appeals court granted a stay and those marriages were halted. Earlier this month, the governor’s office advised state agencies not to recognize the marriages.
