[ATG] Indiana seeks en banc review from full 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in challenge
Start Date: 7/12/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 7/12/2014
Entry Description
INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Attorney General’s Office has filed a motion with the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals seeking a hearing from the full court (en banc) in the challenge to Indiana’s marriage statute, Marilyn Rae Baskin, et al. v. Penny Bogan, et al. Attorney General Greg Zoeller notes the court has already scheduled expedited briefing that initially starts with a three-judge panel, and he emphasizes moving the process forward to the full court of 10 judges would be an additional way to more quickly resolve the uncertainty and chaos surrounding these cases:

“This extraordinarily important legal issue deserves the review and consideration of the entire 7th Circuit Court of Appeals under the existing, expedited schedule for this case,” Zoeller said. “En banc review would serve to provide the Supreme Court with the insights and judgment of ten well-respected judges, rather than just three, which would benefit the judicial review process no matter the outcome.”

Additionally this week, the State of Wisconsin filed a notice of appeal with the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, raising similar issues involving portions of Wisconsin’s marriage law, and noting the court’s recent decision to expedite briefing in the Indiana case.
