This just in: the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit has just granted Indiana Attorney General Gregory Zoeller's request for an emergency stay of Judge Richard Young's ruling striking down the state's ban on same-sex marriage.
Judge Young did not immediately stay Wednesday's ruling, allowing same-sex marriages to begin immediately. However, Zoeller claimed in a motion filed with the court today that "without a stay, any same-sex marriages granted now might have their legal validity questioned later if the United States Supreme Court eventually were to rule in favor of states in upcoming legal challenges to marriage laws."
Several hundred same-sex couples in the Hoosier State have legally married over the past two days, but further marriages are on hold until the case is resolved.
