GAY MARRIAGE-OHIO
Judge puts on hold Ohio gay marriage ruling for all but 4 couples

Reported by: Associated Press

CINCINNATI


A federal judge has put on hold the majority of what attorneys have called a "momentous" change to Ohio's gay marriage law.

Judge Timothy Black on Wednesday stayed his ruling ordering Ohio to recognize the marriages of gay couples who wed in other states.

Black made an exception for the four couples who filed the February lawsuit that led to the court case, ordering Ohio to immediately list both spouses in each relationship as parents on their children's birth certificates.

All other married gay couples in the state will see no immediate tangible expansion of their rights until an appeals court decides to uphold or overturn Black's ruling.

That likely will take months.

Black says implementing his ruling without knowing the appeal's outcome could cause confusion and potential inequity.
