INDIANAPOLIS - Indiana's attorney general wants more than three appellate judges to decide the fate of the state's gay marriage ban.

The office says in a statement issued Saturday that it's filed a motion asking the entire 10-judge 7th Circuit Court of Appeals to hear Indiana's appeal of a judge's order that struck down the ban. Cases are ordinarily heard by a panel of three judges.

On Friday, the 7th Circuit combined Indiana and Wisconsin's gay marriage cases and put them on the fast track. Wisconsin had filed a similar appeal earlier this week.

Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller says moving the case before the full court would speed the process even more.
