LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - A federal judge rules Indiana must recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states.

U.S. District Judge Richard Young put the ruling on hold as a federal appeals court takes up his earlier decision on the issue.

The same judge recently threw out Indiana's same-sex marriage ban altogether, which the state is appealing. Judge Young is also calling out Indiana Governor Mike Pence.

He says the governor contradicted himself because Pence told the court he had no power to enforce the state's gay marriage ban, but then ordered executive agencies to do so following court rulings.
