INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.--- Attorneys who want a federal appeals court to overrule a judge who threw out Indiana's gay marriage ban say there's no constitutional right to marry a person of the same sex.

The Indiana attorney general's office on Monday filed its final brief with the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, repeating its argument that traditional marriage is in the interest of the state.

Attorneys for several same-sex couples filed their brief July 29.

Federal judges in Indiana and Wisconsin overturned each state's gay marriage ban in separate rulings. When both states appealed, the appeals court combined the cases.

The Court of Appeals has scheduled oral arguments for Aug. 26.

Hundreds of same-sex couples were married in both states after the bans were overturned and before stays were issued.
