Stay Issued Stopping Marriage Licenses for Same-Sex Couples in Indiana

The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals issued a stay in the Indiana marriage equality case.

That stops, for now, the issuing of new marriage licenses for same-sex Hoosier couples until the case can be decided on appeal.  Attorney General Greg Zoeller appealed to the 7th Circuit for a stay when lower court judge, Richard Young, refused to grant one.

This is likely just a temporary albeit speed bump along the road to marriage equality.  Equality advocates are running a long winning streak.  That said, anything is possible.  We'll see.
