Last week, the federal judge who heard the case of Amy Sandler and Niki Quasney, who is terminally ill, had granted a beginning of recognition of their marriage in particular allowing the registration of Amy as Niki's spouse on the death certificate.
As reports The Associated Press, the Indiana attorney general's office said in court documents that recognition of the couple's marriage now could raise false hopes for others because courts might eventually uphold the state's gay marriage ban.
But with 5 challenges against oneself, you can bet that the ban will be repealed and that then, as usual, there will be an appeal and, one has already suspected it for a few months, the question could be at the end sent to the supreme court of the United States for a final decision on the federal marriage equality.
It should be noted that a new study just published shows that the equal marriage if Indiana would give $39 million to the State in the three years. The survey is available in pdf: williamsinstitute.law.ucla.edu/wp-content/uploads/Economic-Impact-IN-May-2014.pdf
