Same-Sex Marriage Ban Overturned

Same-Sex marriages in Indiana are off to a quick start after a judge threw out the state's ban. However, they could come to a halt if that same judge grants a request to stay his order while the attorney general appeals. The state requested the stay Wednesday afternoon as hundreds of couples lined up across Indiana to obtain marriage licenses and exchange vows. the state argues it's premature to require Indiana to change its definition of marriage while it appeals Judge Richard Young's ruling. Legal experts on both sides of the debate expect the U.S. Supreme Court to ultimately decide the issue for Indiana and other states where bans have been overturned. The high court last year struck down the federal Defense of Marriage Act.
