Indiana gay marriage ban faces 3 new lawsuits

INDIANAPOLIS – Three new federal lawsuits are taking aim at Indiana’s same-sex marriage ban, boosting to at least five the number of legal challenges to the law filed in a week.

The ACLU of Indiana filed one of the lawsuits Friday on behalf of five gay couples and three other plaintiffs.

That suit says Indiana’s gay marriage ban discriminates against the 13 plaintiffs, including two children whose parents are among the plaintiffs. It says Indiana’s law denies legal protections and other benefits to the couples, three of whom were married in states that allow same-sex marriage.

Two other suits were filed Friday on behalf of couples who were married in states that allow same-sex marriages.

All of the suits contend that Indiana’s same-sex marriage ban is unconstitutional.
