Ind. Courts - Indiana lesbian couple seeks State's emergency recognition of SSM performed outside Indiana

Thanks to Chris Geidner of BuzzFeed, who has just tweeted: "Yesterday, @LambdaLegal filed a motion in Indiana seeking immediate recognition of a same-sex couples' marriage." From the Lambda Legal news release:

Today, Lambda Legal asked a federal court to order the State of Indiana to recognize the marriage of a lesbian couple in Munster. Amy Sandler and Niki Quasney and their two children seek immediate relief from Indiana’s ban on marriage for same-sex couples as Ms. Quasney was diagnosed with stage IV cancer and cannot wait any longer for the protections of marriage.
This March 13th ILB post reports the initial filing of the complaint in the Lambda Legal lawsuit, Baskin v. Bogan, in the U.S.District Court in the Southern District of Indiana. The news release continues:
Today’s filings add Amy Sandler and Niki Quasney of Munster Indiana, and Henry Greene, Glenn Funkhouser and their son of Carmel, Indiana as plaintiffs. Lambda Legal has asked that Niki’s and Amy’s claims now be heard on an emergency basis.
Here is the memorandum in support of the motion, filed March 31st.
