Indiana: Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals Stays Marriage Equality Ruling

In response to a request by the state of Indiana, the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals has stayed it’s ruling overturning the state’s ban on same-sex marriage. This was expected.

The two page ruling states that the stay will remain in effect until either the US Supreme Court rules on the appeal or declines to hear the case. Should SCOTUS refuse to review the ruling, the stay will automatically terminate and marriage equality will become the law of the land in Indiana.

The Indiana case is already filed with SCOTUS and is awaiting the September 29th conference of the Justices.
