CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP) – A federal judge who ordered Ohio to recognize out-of-state gay marriage says he’s inclined to issue a stay of his decision pending appeal.

That would mean that most gay couples living in the state would see no immediate tangible expansion of their rights.

Cincinnati-based Judge Timothy Black ordered attorneys on both sides of the case to file their arguments over whether he should issue a stay no later than Tuesday afternoon. He says he’ll rule expeditiously.

Black says he’s inclined to stay his ruling pending the state’s appeal, except in the case of the four gay couples who filed the February lawsuit that led to the court case.
