Challenges Of Ohio's Voter-Approved Same Sex Marriage Ban Will Cost Taxpayers 1.3 Million Dollars

A federal judge has approved 1.3 million dollars in state payments to the law firm that handled the challenges of Ohio's same-sex marriage ban. The Ohio Department of Health will pay the Cincinnati law firm Gerhardstein and Branch, which sued to force the state to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states and to force the department to recognize the unions on death certificates.
