Ind. Courts - AG Zoeller files a motion for stay in same-sex marriage case

This afternoon Attorney General Zoeller has filed a 12-page emergency motion for stay pending appeal of today's same-sex marriage ruling by federal Judge Young. Here is a copy. Some quotes:

Until the United States Supreme Court determines that traditional marriage laws such as Indiana’s are unconstitutional, it is premature to require Indiana to change its definition of marriage and abide by this Court’s conception of marriage. Nonetheless, marriages in violation of Indiana’s existing law have taken place, are taking place, and will continue to take place pursuant to this Court’s order. Time is of the essence to stop these marriages by staying this Court’s final judgment and all related injunctions pending appeal in order to maintain the historic status quo of man-woman marriage that Indiana and its citizens have adopted.
