INDIANAPOLIS (June 25, 2014) – Indiana’s law banning same-sex marriage is unconstitutional, a federal judge ruled Wednesday.

U.S. District Court Judge Richard L. Young ruled that the law violates the due process and equal protection clauses of the U.S. Constitution. The ruling involves lawsuits from several same-sex couples.

The following counties are now issuing same sex marriage licenses:

  • Marion – Clerk’s office will be open until 8:00 p.m. to issue licenses
  • Hamilton
  • Johnson
  • Boone
  • Brown
  • Monroe
  • Hendricks
  • Madison
  • Morgan

Marion County has processed 50 applications and has conducted 31 civil ceremonies. At least a hundred couples are still in line waiting to apply for a license.
