Ohio: Gay marriage ruling “momentous”

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

Attorneys for the state argued Tuesday that the ruling is “a momentous change” to Ohio’s marriage law that could be overturned on appeal, so ordering it to go into effect immediately would create confusion.

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

Attorneys for the four married gay couples who filed the lawsuit argue that the state’s appeal likely will fail and that there’s no public interest in a delay.

It’s not clear when the judge will decide whether to issue a stay but he said he’ll rule expeditiously.
