Status of Indiana gay marriages up in the air

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - 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 disagreed about the issue Saturday, and it isn't certain a clear answer could be reached any time soon.

An Indiana University law professor says 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.
