Fed Judge forces Ohio to recognize 'same-sex' marriage
A federal judge said Friday he would issue a ruling requiring Ohio to recognize all same-sex marriages performed in other states.
U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Black‚Äôs decision in the Henry v. Wymyslo case comes about nine months after he ruled that Ohio must recognize a gay couple‚Äôs marriage in Maryland, where same-sex marriage is legal, on the death certificate of one of the partners.
Lawyers for a number of same-sex couples expanded their original request to cover all marriages performed in states that allow same-sex unions. On Friday, Black said from the bench that his forthcoming order would rule unconstitutional Ohio‚Äôs ban on recognizing legal same-sex marriages from other states....
From the article, "Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine told WVXU Radio he would appeal to the Sixth Circuit." So, recognizing queer marriages from other states is not a done deal. The Supreme Court, much as it probably doesn't want to, will probably have to elaborate on some of its rulings.
