Indiana Gov. Mike Pence’s office is telling state agencies to ignore gay marriages as if they had never been performed.
The memo from the governor’s chief counsel says that agencies should act as if the June 25 court order striking down Indiana's ban on gay marriage had not been issued.
A federal judge in Indianapolis struck down the state’s gay marriage ban as unconstitutional but an appeals court stayed that ruling three days later after an appeal from the state attorney general’s office.
The out-of-state marriage of Amy Sandler and Nikole Quasney of Munster, will be recognized as per the court order.
Quasney is dying of ovarian cancer and that was the reason behind the exception.
