Indiana Appeals Ruling Overturning Same-Sex Marriage Ban

Indiana's state attorney general joined two county court clerks Wednesday in requesting that a federal judge put on hold his ruling that declared the state's ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional. "The Legislature has the legal authority to determine how marriage shall be defined within Indiana's borders; and Indiana's Legislature has chosen in statute to define marriage in the traditional way — between one man and one woman," the attorney general's office argued. Meanwhile, the Marion County Clerk's Office had processed almost 90 marriage license applications and conducted 63 wedding ceremonies by 6 p.m. ET on Wednesday night, according to NBC station WTHR of Indianapolis.
