Ohio Supreme Court Takes Up Domestic Violence Case.
The Ohio Supreme Court today is scheduled to look at what the state’s gay marriage ban means for unmarried Ohioans in domestic violence cases. The high court will hear arguments in the case of a man from Warren County in southwestern Ohio accused of assaulting his live-in girlfriend.
The trial judge said the domestic violence charge against Michael Carswell was unconstitutional, given the gay marriage amendment. But an appeals court said the judge was wrong to dismiss the case. The constitutional amendment voters approved in 2004 defines marriage as a union between one man and one woman and bars the state from granting legal status to unmarried couples.
