Speaker:  Assistant Professor Nancy Marcus

This CLE course will cover an overview of recent developments in same-sex marriage litigation, at both the national and local levels.   The overview will begin with a summary of the Supreme Court’s historic United States v. Windsor decision.  Professor Marcus will discuss how the Windsor decision has been implemented across the country, resulting in the provision of numerous federal benefits to legally married same-sex couples, even in states such as Indiana that currently do not recognize same-sex marriages under state law.   The discussion will then continue with an overview of pending federal challenges rising through the courts, including court cases in bordering states of Ohio, Kentucky, and Michigan.  Professor Marcus will present a predictive analysis of the inevitability of a follow-up Supreme Court decision, as well as how that decision may turn out.  Finally, Professor Marcus will provide a summary of currently Indiana-specific litigation challenging Indiana’s ban on same-sex marriage.
