Indiana is slient on gay marriage case before U.S. Supreme Court

By Maureen Groppe

INDIANA---Despite vigorously defending a state’s right to prohibit same-sex marriages for years, the Indiana attorney general’s office is not weighing in on the case that is expected to settle the issue. Indiana is not among the 17 states asking the U.S. Supreme Court to side with Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee in the challenges to those states’ gay marriage bans to be argued before the court Tuesday. Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller says he no longer has a duty to defend that position after fighting for the state’s ban all the way to the Supreme Court last year. [link]
