FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – All county clerks in Indiana are issuing licenses to same-sex couples after Monday’s news about the Supreme Court’s decision not to hear Indiana’s appeal.

The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals formally lifted the ban on Tuesday around 10:30 a.m., an action which dozens of counties were waiting for before issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

On Tuesday morning most counties in the area weren’t issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. However, by 2:30 p.m., all but two counties in northeast Indiana were issuing licenses. As of Wednesday, all 92 counties in Indiana were issuing license.

On Monday, Pence said via a statement that while people are free to disagree over the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision, people are not free to disobey the decision.
