7th U.S. Circuit Strikes Down WISCONSIN & INDIANA Bans On Marriage Equality

Less than two weeks after hearing oral arguments in the marriage equality cases involving Indiana and Wisconsin a 3-judge panel of the 7th U.S. Circuit unanimously upheld the lower court rulings in Wolf v. Walker (Wisconsin) and Baskin v. Bogan (Indiana), in a scathing opinion written by Judge Richard Posner striking down state marriage bans as violating the federal constitution. The 7th becomes the third federal appellate court, after the 10th in Denver, CO (June 25 and July 18)and the 4th in Richmond, VA (July 28)  to rule in favor of marriage equality this year.
