EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — A federal judge will hear arguments over a lesbian couple's request for an injunction that would bar Indiana from enforcing its gay marriage ban against their union before one of them dies.
Quasney has stage 4 ovarian cancer, and the couple had argued that the court should grant their request because "they have an urgent need to have their marriage recognized."
Young ordered the state on April 10 to recognize their marriage on Quasney's death certificate whenever it is issued. The order applies only to Quasney and Sandler.
Both sides have filed documents asking Young to issue a summary judgment in their favor.
