Ind. Decisions - SCOTUS has DENIED REVIEW in the SSM cases!

More coming! WOW! The lower court rulings stand! Same sex marriage will be the law of the 7th Circuit, including Indiana. The stays should shortly be lifted in the Circuits affected, including the 7th.

Amy Howe writes in SCOTUSblog
:

The Court denied review of all seven of the petitions arising from challenges to state bans on same-sex marriage. This means that the lower-court decisions striking down bans in Indiana, Wisconsin, Utah, Oklahoma, and Virginia should go into effect shortly, clearing the way for same-sex marriages in those states and any other state with similar bans in those circuits.
This will make same-sex marriage legal in 30 states and the District of Columbia.
