Summary
Same-sex couples filed a lawsuit in federal court that seeks to have Ohio’s constitutional amendment affirming marriage as the union of one man and one woman declared unconstitutional under the U.S. Constitution. The U.S. Supreme Court has consolidated the case with three other cases within the 6th Circuit: DeBoer v. Snyder, Tanco v. Haslam, and Bourke v. Beshear.
