CHICAGO - The Seventh U-S Circuit Court of Appeals combined Indiana’s and Wisconsin’s same sex marriage ban appeals yesterday and put the case on a fast track.
The appeals court ordered briefs to be filed by August 4th with a hearing to be scheduled after that.
Both cases had their bans on same sex marriage ruled unconstitutional by federal judges and both states are appealing those rulings.
Same sex marriages were put on hold by a stay of the judge’s ruling, and Indiana Governor Mike Pence’s administration has ordered state officials not to recognize those marriage performed after the ruling.
