Stuckey Advises Clerk On Same Sex Marriage Ruling

(ANGOLA) - The legal situation is fluid after a federal judge issued a ruling on Wednesday which threw out Indiana's ban on gay marriages. Steuben County Attorney Don Stuckey advised County Clerk Shelly Hebert in an e-mail on Thurday morning that her office should not issue marriage licenses to same sex couples until a ruling is received on the request for a stay of proceedings. The Indiana Attorney Generals office was seeking the stay of the order in their appeal.

Stuckey points out that if a stay is granted, no same sex licenses will be issued until a final ruling. If the stay is not granted, then Hebert's office will be issuing same sex licenses. Stuckey also told Herbert that the clerks office is not permitted to modify state forms for same sex marriages.

Herbert says two men from Fremont came into the Steuben County Clerks office seeking a marriage license but their request was denied on Thursday morning following the advisement from Stuckey. She says they were the first same sex couple to come into her office since the Wednesday ruling.

WANE-TV reported on Thursday that marriage licenses to same sex couples have been issued in LaGrange, DeKalb and Noble Counties.
