The Love v. Pence lawsuit filed last week in federal court in New Albany asks the federal judge to overturn Indiana's Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as between a male and a female.
The U.S. Supreme Court's ruling on same-sex marriage, specifically the federal Defense of Marriage Act, and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence's response raise complicated questions.

INDIANAPOLIS | Attorney General Greg Zoeller is pleased the U.S. Supreme Court will decide soon whether states can restrict marriage to opposite-sex couples.
With President Barack Obama declaring a personal stance for gay marriage, the hot button topic has once again been thrust to the forefront of politics.
