Thus besides the challenge launched by four couples as we had seen, the American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana institute proceedings with five gay and lesbian couples and 3 other plaintiffs including 2 children and their parents, in the federal court of Indianapolis against the marriage equality ban stipulating that this one denies legal protections, tax advantages and other benefits to the couples.
A third lawsuit was filed by a lesbian couple.
A fourth lawsuit was filed by four lesbian couples against the ban too.
Finally, at the beginning of the week, Lambda Legal, a national gay rights group, also filed a fifth lawsuit with three lesbian couples.
Apparently, all these lawsuits could be consolidated into a single challenge, as Ken Falk, chief legal counsel for the ACLU of Indiana, told The News Sentinel.
