Ind. Decisions - Written order in Baskin v. Bogan request for emergency recognition

Here is Judge Young's April 18th written order supporting his bench ruling April 10th in the case of Baskin v. Bogan.

As Charles D. Wilson of the AP writes in this new story:

A federal judge says attorneys defending Indiana’s gay marriage ban haven’t shown any good reason to not recognize the marriage of a lesbian couple, one of whom has a terminal illness.

Judge Richard Young’s order dated Friday outlines the rationale behind his April 10 decision to grant the couple a temporary restraining order barring the state from enforcing its gay marriage ban against them.

Young says he granted the request in large part because Niki Quasney and Amy Sandler, who were marrided in Massachusetts, are likely to succeed in their bid to have Indiana’s gay marriage ban declared unconstitutional.
