INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The state of Indiana will not recognize the gay marriages conducted here during three days in June.

The governor’s chief counsel, Mark Ahearn, sent a memo to agency heads this week advising them that the Indiana ban on gay marriages is in full force pending an appeal.

The memo tells agencies to “execute their functions” as though the June 25 federal court order striking down the ban had not been issued.

The memo does make an exception for the marriage of Amy Sandler and Niki Quasny, in accordance with a ruling by the federal appeals court.
