INDIANAPOLIS - Gay marriage supporters are celebrating after a federal appeals court upheld a ruling that Indiana's ban on same-sex unions is unconstitutional.
The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday affirmed U.S. District Judge Richard Young's June 25 ruling that Indiana's ban violated the equal protection clause of the U.S. Constitution.
The ruling sent hundreds of couples flocking to clerks' offices across the state for marriage licenses, but those were halted when the appeals court granted a state request for a stay.
It wasn't immediately clear Thursday whether same-sex marriages would resume.
American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana legal director Ken Falk says the organization is convinced Young's decision was correct but will wait to see what the next legal steps are.
The attorney general's office was reviewing the ruling.
A recent poll indicates most Indiana residents approve of a 10-cent fuel tax increase that went into effect in July.
