Boone issued 10 same-sex marriage licenses

Citing “unprecedented” issues confronting county clerks who have issued marriage licenses to same-sex couples, Indiana Attorney General Gregg Zoller has emailed guidelines those clerks should follow until courts have made a final ruling on whether the licenses are legal.Ten marriage licenses were issued in Boone County to same-sex couples in a 2-1/2 day period last week. U.S. District Court Judge Richard Young struck down Indiana’s law banning same-sex marriages on June 25; on June 27, the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued a stay putting Young’s decision on hold.Hundreds of same-sex couples were married, or obtained marriage licenses, before the 7th Circuit issued its ruling.No certificates of same-sex marriage issued after the 7th Circuit’s ruling should be processed, Rhonda Burris of the Indiana Attorney General’s Office said in an email sent to all of Indiana’s county clerks. Burns is the administrative assistant to the chief deputy and chief administrative officer.Refunds of marriage license fees may be issued if requested, or held pending resolution of the appeal, Burns said.No certificates of same-sex marriages should be processed pending the outcome of appeals, she said.
