Seventh U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals

Indiana convenience stores’ bid to win the right to sell cold beer took another blow Monday when a federal appeals court ruled against them.  

Only liquor stores are allowed to sell cold beer for carryout under Indiana law.  The Indiana Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Store Association, or IPCA, filed suit in 2013 seeking to invalidate that law.  A federal judge last year ruled against the group.

The Indiana Attorney General’s office is warning same sex couples who got married in a narrow window in June that their marriages may not be valid.

On June 25, U.S. District Court Judge Richard Young ruled Indiana’s gay marriage ban unconstitutional -- and didn’t stay the effects of his ruling. 

Two days later, the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals did halt the ruling.  And in those two days, hundreds of same sex couples across the state got marriage licenses. 

But the Attorney General’s office says some of those marriages could be invalid.

Supporters and opponents of marriage equality in Indiana are headed to Chicago to plead their cases.

The Seventh U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will hear oral arguments on Indiana's appeal of a June ruling that struck down Indiana's same-sex marriage ban.

Kyle Megrath, marriage coordinator with Hoosiers Unite for Marriage, says momentum is building with over three dozen court cases nationwide ruling in favor of marriage equality.
