Were all of those Indiana gay marriages valid?

INDIANAPOLIS – It could be months before same-sex couples who were married during the three days it was legal to do so in Indiana know whether their unions are valid.

Legal experts disagree, and it isn’t certain a clear answer could be reached any time soon.

An Indiana University law professor Saturday that when a federal appeals court put on hold a U.S. district judge’s Wednesday ruling that struck down Indiana’s prohibition on gay marriage, it “reset” the state’s ban and invalidated the licenses issued.

But a spokesman for the state attorney general’s office says it is uncertain whether those who were married before the court’s stay are still married. He also said it will be up to the courts to decide later.
