Happy Day! Judge Struck Down Gay Marriage Ban...in INDIANA

Yep! Pretty happy right now here in the Hoosier state


"A federal judge has struck down Indiana's ban on gay marriage, calling it unconstitutional.

U.S. District Judge Richard Young ruled Wednesday that the state's ban violates the U.S. Constitution's equal-protection clause in a mixed ruling involving lawsuits from several gay couples.

The Indiana Attorney General's Office says it's analyzing the rulings and will communicate with county clerks on proper marriage license procedures in order to avoid chaos during the appeal. Attorney General Greg Zoeller has previously said he would file an appeal in the event of such a ruling, and will quickly ask for a stay of today's ruling pending appeal.

Marion County Clerk Beth White says her office is ready, and the first couple to be married were Jake Miller and Craig Bowen."
