In an order dated 4/4/2014, Federal Judge Timothy Black stated “The Court anticipates striking down as unconstitutional under all circumstances Ohio’s bans on recognizing legal same-sex marriages from other states.”  The case, Henry v. Wymyslo, United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio, 1:14-cv-00129, was filed by same-sex couples married outside of Ohio seeking to  be recognized as parents on their children’s Ohio birth certificates.  See Cincinnati Enquirer article

Ohio voters approved amending the state constitution to include a ban on same-sex marriages in 2004.

Judge Black previously held that Ohio authorities must recognize a valid same-sex marriage on death certificates.  See our prior post
