Ind. Courts - More on "Lambda Legal Files Federal Suit Seeking Marriage for Same-Sex Couples in Indiana"

Updating this ILB post from a few minutes ago, Tim Evans of the Indianapolis Star has a report on the Baskin v. Bogan lawsuit. Some quotes:

For the second time in less than a week, Indiana’s law banning same-sex marriages has become the target of a federal lawsuit.

A national gay-rights legal group filed a federal lawsuit Monday on behalf of three same-sex couples who seek the freedom to marry in their home state of Indiana.

The lawsuit follows a similar legal challenge filed in federal court Friday by four Indiana same-sex couples challenging the same-sex marriage ban and the state’s refusal to recognize gay unions legally performed in other states.

The Indiana legal challenges are part of a national wave of lawsuits targeting state bans on same-sex marriages.

Boone County Clerk Penny Bogan, Porter County Clerk Karen M. Martin, Lake County Clerk Michael A. Brown, as well as Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller, are named as defendants in the the lawsuit filed Monday in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana by Lambda Legal.
