Federal judge sets hearing on Indiana gay couple’s marriage

EVANSVILLE, Ind. – A federal judge in Evansville has scheduled a Thursday hearing on a gay couple’s bid to compel Indiana to recognize their out-of-state marriage.

The Evansville Courier & Press reports (http://bit.ly/1kbO4YZ) U.S. District Court Judge Richard L. Young said during a Friday teleconference with attorneys in the case that on Thursday morning he’ll hear the couple’s request for a temporary restraining order requiring Indiana to recognize their marriage.

Niki Quasney and Amy Sandler married last year in Massachusetts, but Quasney is now dying from ovarian cancer. The northern Indiana couple wants Young to order the state to recognize their marriage in Quasney’s anticipated death certificate.

They are part of a lawsuit challenging Indiana’s marriage laws filed last month by Lambda Legal, a national gay rights group.
