Appellate Practice News


Posted on: Sep 9, 2014

On September 9, Indiana filed an appeal to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling from last week with the United States Supreme Court. The 7th Circuit ruling declared the same-sex marriage ban in Indiana unconstitutional.

Attorney General Greg Zoeller's statement reads: "Less than six months after my office first entered our appearance in trial court to defend our state client from this lawsuit, our case now is knocking on the door of the United States Supreme Court, timing that is lightning speed by the standards of the federal court system. Our state, nation and all persons involved need a final, unambiguous and conclusive answer from the Supreme Court on the legal authority of states to license marriages, and we ask the Court to take up this question through either our case or another case at its earliest opportunity and end the uncertainty."
