OHIO (WOIO) –
Cincinnati-based Federal Judge Timothy Black ruled on Monday that Ohio’s refusal to recognize same-sex marriages from other states is unconstitutional and such marriages must be recognized under the law for all purposes.
However, Judge Black temporarily stayed his decision – delaying its effect – and asked the parties to brief their arguments for and against a stay by tomorrow, April 15, 2014.
Judge Black will then rule quickly on whether to delay the full effects of his ruling until it is reviewed by the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals.
The plaintiffs who brought this case are same-sex couples married in one of the 17 states or the District of Columbia where marriage for same-sex couples is legal. They sought an order requiring Ohio to recognize their marriages just as Ohio recognizes the out-of-state marriages of opposite-sex couples.
