Ind. Courts - First word from 7th Circuit on same sex marriage coming?

Updating this post from this morning, we may soon hear the first word from the 7th Circuit on same-sex marriage:

Same-sex marriage is permitted by law in Illinois.

Indiana Attorney General Zoeller, according to this May 9th post quoting the AP's Charles Wilson:

... filed a formal notice of appeal following U.S. District Judge Richard Young's ruling [requiring Indiana to recognize the out-of-state marriage of a lesbian couple in which one woman is terminally ill]. Indiana will ask the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals to review Young's decision, which applies just to one couple — not to others who were legally wed elsewhere and are seeking to have Indiana recognize their marriages.
Re Wisconsin, Chris Geidner of BuzzFeed is now reporting "Wisconsin Officials Ask Federal Appeals Court To Stop Same-Sex Marriages Immediately: Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen asks 7th Circuit to 'enter an order immediately staying' part of Friday’s marriage ruling."
