Indiana Ordered By Court To Recognize Lesbian Marriage Including Dying Partner

Indiana courthouseAt least one same-sex couple in Indiana will have their marriage recognized by the state following a federal court decision Tuesday.

The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago ordered Indiana to acknowledge the marriage of a lesbian couple, one of whom is terminally ill, on an emergency basis.

The emergency ruling came just days after the court stayed a federal judge's order setting aside Indiana's prohibition of gay marriage as unconstitutional.

Lawyers from Lambda Legal had asked the appeals court for the continued recognition of the marriage of Amy Sandler and Niki Quasney, who is fighting advanced ovarian cancer.

"It is time for the State of Indiana to leave Niki and Amy in peace and not subject them and their marriage to any more stress and uncertainty as this case proceeds. We're thrilled that the court ruled in favor of this family as Niki battles stage 4 ovarian cancer," said Paul D. Castillo, attorney for the national gay rights group Lambda Legal, who represented the couple.
