An Ohio federal judge announced Friday he intends to issue a written order by April 14, striking down Ohio’s ban on recognizing legal gay marriages.
Judge Timothy Black says the ban is unconstitutional.
This does not mean Ohio will allow gay marriages, but the state would have to recognize marriages of gay couples who legally wed elsewhere.

2. St. Louis Blues, 1929 RKO/Sack Amusements FREE Screening (one of several shorts), Feb. 26th, 7:30pm, Rock Hall - This sixteen-minute short film shot in Astoria, Queens, New York City, is blues singer Bessie Smith’s only screen role. In it, she plays a long-suffering wife of an uncaring gambler. Co-produced by W.C. Handy, author of the title song, the film also features Isabelle Washington (sister of actress Fredi Washington) who plays the “other woman.” Pianist James P. Johnson and the Hall Johnson Choir accompanied Smith and added to the overwhelming pathos of her singing, making this dramatized interpretation of the blues a true film classic.2 of 6
