Athens County Woman Again Applies For Same-Sex Divorce
An Athens County woman whose request for a same-sex divorce in Ohio was accidentally granted and then denied by a judge has again filed for divorce in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage. Brenda Mohney says she was married in 2008 in California but has lived apart from her spouse for more than a year. Athens County Common Pleas Judge George McCarthy, who was listed for the case, is the one who approved the divorce and then vacated that decision last December. The judge said the marriage was not recognized under state law.
