INDIANAPOLIS - Indiana has outlined its reasons for appealing a federal judge's decision that struck down the state's gay marriage ban.
The state's arguments appear in a brief filed Tuesday with the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago. They repeat the same arguments the state has made previously, essentially that regulating marriage should be up to the state, which has a legitimate interest in promoting traditional marriage.
The appellate court consolidated Indiana's case with a similar case from Wisconsin on Friday and put them on a fast track.
Both states have requested that all 10 judges on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals hear the cases.
U.S. District Judge Richard Young threw out the Indiana ban on June 25. The 7th circuit stayed the decision two days later.
