Ind. Courts - A third challenge to Indiana's same-sex marriage prohibition announced; this one by Indiana ACLU

The American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana has announced that it will hold a news conference at noon today to discuss its lawsuit challenging Indiana's marriage law. A quote:

By continuing the discriminatory practice of failing to allow or recognize same-sex marriages in Indiana, the State is denying couples and families the same dignity, legal protections and financial and emotional stability afforded to opposite-sex couples, and is violating the Equal Protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The ACLU of Indiana's lawsuit seeks to stop the state from enforcing this law now and in the future by requiring it to recognize marriages that have taken place outside of Indiana and allowing same-sex couples to wed in Indiana.
The ILB will post the complaint as soon as it is available.

This makes three lawsuits within a week, the first last Friday (Love v. Pence), the second yesterday (Baskin v. Bogan).
