Supreme Court Turns Down Indiana's Same-Sex Marriage Appeal, Effectively Making Gay Marriages Legal In Indiana
The U.S. Supreme Court declined to accept an appeal of the recent 7th Circuit Court of Appeals decision earlier this year striking down Indiana's statutory ban on same-sex marriages, which has the effect of allowing the district court to enforce an injunction barring Indiana officials from depriving same-sex couples of the legal right to marry. As a result of today's decision, same-sex marriages will now be legal in 30 states and the District of Columbia. It's only a matter of time before they are legal in all 50 states.
