    Equality 'On Hold' in the Cornfield

     

    Following  a Wednesday ruling by Federal District Judge Richard Young which found  Indiana's law banning equality for same-gender couples unconstitutional,  hundreds of same-gender couples across the state applied and received  legal recognition of their long-term, committed relationships.

    Sadly,  late Friday afternoon, Attorney General Greg Zoeller sought and was  granted an emergency stay of Young's order while the Hoosier State  appeals the finding.

    Those  same-gender couples who received legal status (500 in Marion County  home of the state capitol, Indianapolis alone) are now in a legal limbo  until the Appeals Court rules on the appeal.

    From  the Cornfield, Iohn, my life partner, and I had planned to try once  again next week to obtain a license in our home county of Sullivan.  Those plans now must wait until the Appeals Court has its say - and  possibly until the Supreme Court takes up the issue of equality for all  long-term, committed relationships.
