Ind. Decisions - Hamilton County Clerk gains voluntary dismissal from State of Indiana's same sex marriage appeal to 7th Circuit

Hamilton County Clerk Peggy Beaver, one of the defendants in Baskin v. Bogan, moved today for voluntary dismissal from the appeal to the 7th Circuit. The rationale stated:

3. The Hamilton County Clerk has no additional arguments to add to this Appeal.

4. After discussion with undersigned counsel, the Hamilton County Clerk desires to
voluntarily dismiss her Appeal pursuant to Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure Rule 42.

The other defendants did not object.

The 7th Circuit has now issued an order granting the Hamilton County Clerk's motion for voluntary dismissal.

ILB: I have no idea why this was done or what might be the significance...
