Indiana’s attorney general argued in the state’s final brief ahead of the hearing that traditional marriage is in the interest of the state, while a recent brief by Wisconsin’s attorney general contends there is no fundamental right to gay marriage. Attorneys for both sides expect the issue to eventually land in the U.S. Supreme Court. The appeals court did, however, let stand a specific order by the lower court that required Indiana to recognize the marriage between Quasney, 38, and Sandler, 37, because Quasney is dying. The women, who married in Massachusetts and have 3-year-old and 1-year-old daughters, are currently the only same-sex couple whose marriage is recognized in Indiana. “It’s hard for Niki and I to know that there are hundreds of couples that did get married after the court decision … and their marriages have essentially been ignored,” said Sandler, who hopes to attend Tuesday’s arguments in Chicago. Paul Castillo, an attorney for the national gay rights group Lambda Legal, which is representing the couple and several others in the Indiana case, said health care is among the central issues. “There’s something to be said when a state recognizes a marriage and the dignity that confers on a couple who is undergoing crisis moments, not to be burdened with the possibility that when they seek emergency medical treatment or have to make decisions with regard to end of life, that those will not be honored,” Castillo said.

And Tory Burch partnered with Fitbit for accessories she designed exclusively for use with the fitness brand’s Flex, including a brass pendant and bracelet, and patterned silicone wristbands. Does the geek side of the equation need the luxury fashion side? It’s the hope of Lauren that Polo Tech, featuring sensors knitted in to read heartbeat, respiration and other biometrics, will resonate with the fit and the trying-to-get-fit.
