INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Indiana attorney general's office says county clerks who issued marriage licenses last week to same-sex couples should not grant any more of those licenses.
A federal appeals court on Tuesday ordered Indiana to recognize the marriage of one lesbian couple. That emergency order applies only to Amy Sandler and Niki Quasney, who's fighting advanced ovarian cancer.
That move came after the same court on Friday stayed a federal judge's ruling striking down Indiana's ban on same-sex marriage as unconstitutional.
The attorney general's office says the stay put hundreds of marriage licenses issued same-sex couples and gay weddings performed in Indiana before the stay in legal limbo.
The office is advising clerks not to issue any more marriage licenses to same-sex couples or perform any more gay weddings.
