Indiana attorney general urges civility, respect for marriage ruling

 

INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana's attorney general is asking residents to treat each other with civility and show respect for the U.S. Supreme Court following its ruling requiring all states to recognize same-sex marriage.

Attorney General Greg Zoeller said in a statement Friday that the court's 5-4 decision won't change much in Indiana because the state has allowed same-sex marriage since last year.

The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana last year ruled Indiana's ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional, and the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago upheld the ruling.

Marriage licenses have been issued to same-sex couples since October, when the U.S. Supreme Court denied the state's request to review the appellate court's decision.
