Ind. Gov't. - AG Zoeller files brief in Nevada's same sex marriage appeal to the 9th Circuit

Yesterday the ILB reported that the State of Indiana had involved itself in the same-sex marriage appeals from the States of Utah and Oklahoma to the 10th Circuit, situated in Denver, Colorado. 17 groups "have given the 10 Circuit notice they plan to file amicus briefs in the case." The list includes the State of Indiana.

The ILB has learned today that the State of Indiana late last month filed an amicus brief with the 9th Circuit in Beverly Sevcik v. Brian Sandoval, a case involving a challenge to a Nevada prohibition against same-sex marriage.

The State of Indiana is the lead counsel on this brief in support of the Nevada same-sex marriage prohibition. Indiana is joined on the brief by the States of Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Utah.

Here is a copy of the 49-page brief, submitted Jan. 28, 2014 by Gregory F. Zoeller.
