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

Updating this ILB post from April 1, which linked to the March 31st memorandum in support of the motion that the claims of Amy Sandler and Niki Quasney be heard on an emergency basis, here is Chief Judge Young's order April 1 re a telephonic conference on April 4th:

... in order to address the Plaintiff Quasney and Sandler’s Motion for Temporary Restraining Order and Preliminary Injunction filed on March 31, 2014.
Here is Jill Disis' brief Indianapolis Star story today that begins:
A terminally ill Munster woman and the woman she married in Massachusetts could find out as soon as Friday whether Indiana will be ordered to recognize their marriage.

Amy Sandler and Niki Quasney on Monday became the latest same-sex couple to challenge Indiana’s gay marriage ban when they joined a lawsuit filed last month in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana. * * * Unlike the other couples, however, Sandler and Quasney are requesting immediate recognition of their marriage. Quasney was diagnosed in 2009 with ovarian cancer.
