Marriage equality moves to the Hoosier State

A major marriage equality victory was handed down today in the Midwest, with a judge in Indiana ruling that the state’s ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional.

The ruling comes from U.S. District Judge Richard Young, who states the ban violates the U.S. Constitution’s equal-protection clause.  The ruling involved multiple lawsuits from several gay couples.

The Indiana State Attorney General is expected to appeal the ruling.
